The Saratoga Youth Symphony provides youth of all ages the opportunity to play and perform great music in a non-competitive environment. While participation in SYS ensembles is tuition-based, the organization has a long-standing commitment to making its programs available to all qualified musicians; financial assistance is available, and no qualified student will be denied an opportunity to participate because of financial need.
For more than 13 years, the Saratoga Youth Symphony has provided wholesome, challenging opportunities for this special group of young musicians who, in turn, enrich the cultural life of Saratoga Springs.
Through auditions held each spring, students are selected for membership and placed in appropriate ensembles. Any student who successfully auditions for an ensemble is accepted, regardless of ability to pay. Spring auditions determine placement for the beginning of the new season. The Saratoga Youth Symphony season aligns with most area school calendars, beginning in September and concluding in May, with breaks for holidays.
