YOP Open Houses


Due to ongoing and expanding closures related to COVID-19 (coronavirus), and especially in light of the Governor’s declaration of a state of emergency,  the Richmond Symphony will cancel our YOP Open House dates for Tuesday, March 24 & Tuesday, March 31 in order to help protect the health, well-being, and safety of our patrons, musicians, and those in the community we serve.

We will try to reschedule these dates for interested students and will update this page and our social media when a decision is made.

Join us and discover what YOP is all about!  Prospective members are encouraged to bring along their instruments and sit-in on a rehearsal.  Parents are welcome too, and will have the opportunity to chat with YOP staff at our Q&A session.  These events are free!

This a great opportunity for any student musician who may be considering YOP in the future.  Please RSVP below so we are prepared for your arrival.
