Youth Symphony Festival Participation

  • The 2023 Youth Symphony Festival will be held on Monday, March 20, 2023. We are using this form to compile a list of which orchestras intend to participate this year. We know that youth orchestra programs around the state are flourishing, and we are excited to organize this music-filled day with your students. There are a couple of guidelines in place in order to accommodate the many orchestra groups that want to participate. Please note:

    1. All orchestras will have 30 minutes onstage. This is a change from previous years. You may utilize the full 30 minutes or a portion thereof. These blocks of time will include set-up, a short tuning, performance, and exiting the stage.
    2. All junior orchestras will be scheduled during the morning block, as well as some senior orchestras.
    3. Orchestras who fail to adhere to the time limit may not be invited to participate in the Festival in future years.

    Please complete this form by Monday, February 20, 2023. If we have not received your completed form by then, we will assume that you are not participating this year.
