General Information


For the 2016 season we will be continuing to maintain three full orchestral ensembles: The Philharmonic, Symphonic, and Concert Orchestras.  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 on a regular basis. The student musicians will also continue to have the benefits of free tickets to TSO performances, Side-by-Side opportunities, and advance purchase privileges for family, but most importantly, the orchestra will continue to perform the highest quality literature from the orchestral repertoire in addition to selected chamber repertoire. We also plan to continue our commissioning projects. In the previous three seasons, our students have presented 9 world premiere performances. 


There is a $250 tuition fee for each member of the orchestra. Families with more than one member in the orchestra will pay only $220 for each additional child. Tuition assistance is available to qualifying students. Please contact Joan Weiler, TSYO Coordinator, at 419-418-0037 or  All inquiries about tuition assistance or tuition related issues are held in strict confidence.  Deadlines for communication regarding tuition assistance requests are August 1st, so please be in touch with us soon if you need additional information.


We hope you will join us for our 2016/2017 season!
