Apprentice Program

Every season, YSO Juniors and Seniors have the opportunity to audition to participate in our Apprentice Program, in partnership with the Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra.  Two to four students are selected and partnered with a professional mentor. Each student receives five private lessons and then performs on stage with his or her mentor at a Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra concert. This is a wonderful educational opportunity for our students!
