Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra
Established in 1974, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra provides Atlanta’s most talented and dedicated students an outlet to perform masterworks.
Each year, more than three hundred rising 8th to 12th-grade instrumentalists audition for seats in the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra (ASYO). The ASYO presents a three-concert series each year and members have exclusive invitations to participate in readings and master classes with the top artists in the instrumental music industry.
The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra is an integral member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra family and a vigorous part of the cultural fabric of the community. The ASYO strives for national preeminence among youth orchestras, while cultivating the artistic growth and excellence of its members through enriching orchestral experiences and mentoring by ASO musicians.
