Youth Symphony Orchestra

The Wichita Falls Youth Symphony Orchestra (YSO) opens its 25th Anniversary season this year, serving area youth musicians throughout Texoma since 1992. The Youth Symphony Orchestra is made up of two performing groups of elementary, junior high and high school students. Auditions/chair placements┬átake place in every season for returning and new musicians. Students rehearse once a week on Sunday afternoons at Midwestern State University’s Instrumental Music Hall. On average, the group performs 2-3 concerts a season, which are free to the public. The YSO allow young musicians to collaborate to make music in a full orchestral environment while expanding their musical skills and knowledge.

Dr. Susan Harvey is the music director/conductor of the Youth Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Gina Menden is the conductor of the Philharmonic Orchestra.
