The Richmond Symphony Youth Orchestra (RSYO) offers a pre-college orchestra experience for the serious student musician. Nearly all members of RSYO study with private instructors and all are leaders in their school programs. RSYO performs masterworks of the orchestral repertoire and, once each season, performs side-by-side with the Richmond Symphony. In RSYO, students hold themselves to a high level of discipline, preparation and musicianship.
