Learn Programs for Young Musicians
Adult Musicians Strings Class
A special addition to our education programs for our community members who wish to learn to play a string instrument after they’re all grown up.
Our Adult string classes offer group instruction which provides a friendly setting for you to work at your own pace and learn to love playing music.
Salisbury Symphony Youth Orchestra (SSYO)
The Salisbury Youth Orchestra was established in the 1999-2000 season with a grant from the Blanche & Julian Robertson Family Foundation. Originating as a string ensemble for our youngest students, it now includes students between the ages of 10 and 18. The youth orchestra meets weekly through the school year and plays two concerts a season. The youth orchestra is always looking for new young musicians to join their group and accepts auditions through the season.
Summer Music Camp
The Salisbury Symphony sponsors a two week-long day-camp experience for beginning through advanced string students and an intensive study camp for intermediate pianists. Generally the one week camp takes place in mid-June, Monday - Friday from 9am to 4pm, and culminates in a free concert performance that is open to the public.
After-School String Program
The Salisbury Symphony provides after-school elementary class instruction in violin, viola and cello for students at least 8 years old. Single-site concerts are performed at the end of the first semester, and a gala concert including students from all sites plus the Youth Orchestra is presented at the end of the second semester.
