Youth Symphony

Welcome to the 2017-18 season of the Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony!

Started in 1934, this is the second oldest youth symphony west of the Mississippi! The Youth Symphony (YS) presents some of the greater Eugene/Springfield area’s finest student musicians in exciting concerts featuring outstanding soloists and demanding orchestral music.

We proudly welcomed Dr. David Jacobs as conductor of the Youth Symphony  in the spring of 2015-16. He brings a tremendous background of professionalism and musicianship to the orchestra. Dr. Jacobs also serves as Director of Orchestral Studies at the University of Oregon. We are thrilled that he is part of the ESYO family! For more about Dr. Jacobs, click here.

Youth Symphony concerts feature a variety of exciting repertoire and feature student soloists. Auditions are held annually in the spring. YS rehearsals are held Monday evenings in the South Eugene High band room from 6:45-9pm (including federal holidays), beginning SEPT 25, 2017.  Be sure to subscribe to the google calendar below and check regularly for rehearsal and concert updates.
