SSO PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS
SALISBURY SYMPHONY YOUTH ORCHESTRA (SSYO)
The Salisbury Youth Orchestra was established in the 1999-2000 season with a grant from the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation. Originating as a string ensemble for our youngest students, it now includes students between the ages of 10 and 18. Orchestra members receive free admission to Salisbury Symphony Concerts and receive the opportunity to perform side-by-side with the adult orchestra in select season. The SSYO is under the direction of Liz Burns.
Auditions are currently open for the 2021-2022 Season. Due to Covid-19, we will be holding virtual auditions.
SALISBURY SYMPHONY SUMMER STRINGS CAMP
The Salisbury Symphony sponsors a week-long day-camp experience for beginning through advanced string students. Generally the one week camp takes place in mid-June, Monday - Friday from 9am to 4pm, and culminates in a free concert performance that is open to the public. The camp is currently held at the First United Methodist Church in Salisbury. Registration is open now for our free string camp for beginners. The camp is scheduled to run June 21-25, 2021.
