Charleston Symphony Youth Orchestra

Welcome to the CSYO!

Like us on Facebook for updated information about the CSYO and visit our events page!

The CSYO provides serious young musicians the opportunity to perform the same music as the world’s finest professional orchestras, playing in amazing venues such as The Gaillard Center.  Students enjoy the opportunity to work with professional musicians, such as our own outstanding conductor, Jack Cleghorn, as well as the professional musicians in the Charleston Symphony Orchestra and their amazing Music Director, Ken Lam. Be sure to come hear us play, or better yet, join and be inspired by like-minded musicians!
