About us!

Greetings and welcome,


We would like to take a moment and let you know about the Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras and the upcoming auditions for the 2016-17 season. The Toledo Symphony continues to provide artistic and educational leadership for the TSYO. We are excited about this continued partnership and hope to be able to work with you in an effort to provide another musical and educational outlet for your students, in addition to the instruction you provide. We would like to ask for your continued help in encouraging students to build on the positive experiences they receive in your own program through membership in the Toledo Youth Orchestras.


The TSYO traditionally draws the most talented young musicians from northwest Ohio and southern Michigan. The opportunity to perform with a group of musicians with similar dedication to musicianship and quality of performance would be a wonderful supplemental experience for them. Active recruiting for next season will begin soon, and we anticipate our structure will continue to allow us to build on the quality that has been established.


For the 2016 season we will be continuing to maintain three orchestral ensembles: The Philharmonic, Symphonic as full orchestras, and the Concert ensemble as a string orchestra.  Through these three ensembles, we are able to continue accommodating the growing numbers of musicians interested in performing with the TSYO. The program represents a proven value for young musicians in the greater Toledo area, and members receive numerous benefits.


Student musicians in the youth orchestras will continue to be actively involved with performers from the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. The student musicians will also continue to have the benefits of free tickets to the TSO performances (with advance purchase privileges for families) and side-by-side performance opportunities. Most importantly the orchestra will continue to perform the highest quality literature from the orchestral repertoire.



As part of the core educational mission of the Toledo Symphony, the Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras bring together 200 of the most talented students from Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan in an atmosphere of musical excellence.


Dedicated staff members and musicians work hard to give a top quality musical education to all students regardless of financial circumstance. READ MORE HERE>>


The Toledo Youth Orchestras have been in existance for over 60 years, starting out as a small group of friends meeting for fun, the organization grew into what we know today.
