Educational & Community Outreach
The Orange County Youth Symphony additionally serves to support and supplement music programs across the County.
- Presented in longtime partnership with the Philharmonic Society of Orange County, our annual Concerts for Fifth Grade series has impacted more than one million students since the 1980s.
- All OCYS and OCYSE musicians must participate in their respective school's primary string, band, or orchestral programs. Their participation reinforces both ensembles and immerses each student in symphonic literature.
