Colorado Springs Youth Symphony

What We Do

Our seven youth ensembles connect families to the life-altering power of musical performance, both in the Pikes Peak Region and around the world. Whether they’re playing at our home base, the Pikes Peak Center, or far afield in New York’s Carnegie Hall, New Zealand, China, Australia, Bulgaria or Japan, our students benefit from the most comprehensive instrumental music program for youth in this part of the country.

Why We’re Great!

Thanks to our Give! donors, we have been able to expand our Mozart String Project for string instruction in school districts that do not have their own orchestra programs, and we have been able to bring our concerts to more local audiences that have limited exposure to live orchestral music. It’s a win-win for our 450 participants and the 20,000 people we play for every year!

Volunteer/Other Needs

Professional musicians to provide coaching; assistance with mailings & reception; large equipment truck, Manhasset music stands, stamps, office supply gift cards, instruments in good condition

Make A Donation
Our family has lived in bigger cities yet has not seen a top-notch youth orchestra like the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony. I am constantly amazed by the richness they offer to children in this community
