The Youth Symphony capped off an amazing season with their incredible performance on May 24, 2018. Click here for photos and highlights!
This is the second oldest youth symphony west of the Mississippi! The Youth Symphony (YS) began as the Junior Symphony in 1934. 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.
