Central Illinois Youth Symphony evolving to Youth Music Illinois

For over 50 years, the Central Illinois Youth Symphony has served dedicated and enthusiastic student musicians from throughout central Illinois through our comprehensive and innovative orchestral performance programs. This year we are evolving from Central Illinois Youth Symphony to Youth Music Illinois, a change that will be reflected in new opportunities for the student musicians we serve. The core programs will remain, including Youth Symphony, Concert Orchestra, and Prep Orchestra in addition to numerous ensembles while we explore and implement the new opportunities.

Youth Symphony rehearsals on Sunday afternoons for the 2017/18 Season!

Youth Symphony students are incredibly busy and were having a hard time making Thursday rehearsals. As a result Youth Symphony will be rehearsing on Sunday afternoons between 3 & 6 pm. Interested in learning more? E-mail Jeff McSweeney, Executive Director.

Autumn Auditions – Thursday, August 10th

Did you miss the Spring auditions? Can you participate in the new Sunday rehearsals for Youth Symphony? Would you like to be a part of Concert or Prep Orchestra that rehearses on Thursday evenings?

You may audition on Thursday, August 10th! Please e-mail Carrie and she’ll schedule your time.
