GYSO empowers and supports students in accomplishing musical goals and in developing teamwork and leadership skills. GYSO comprises five orchestras, a jazz ensemble, a percussion ensemble, flute and clarinet choirs, a string symposium, several chamber ensembles, and GYSO Chorus. 


Through auditions, gifted and talented school-aged musicians from across the state are given the opportunity to continue musical development in a nurturing and supportive environment. GYSO members perform at the highest level during a full season of concerts.
