Youth Symphony Orchestra
The Youth Symphony Orchestra (YSO) was founded in 1995 to give a high-level orchestral experience to middle and high school students from northern Nevada and northern California. Since this time, the YSO has become the region’s premier youth orchestra, comprised of exceptional musicians who perform advanced symphonic repertoire.
Included in the YSO’s annual performance schedule are two concerts at Renown Health as part of their ‘Healing Arts’ series, and Fall and Spring concerts at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.
Many YSO members have gone on to perform with the Reno Philharmonic and other professional orchestras. The YSO is conducted by Reno Philharmonic Associate Conductor Dr. Jason Altieri, who also conducts the University of Nevada Reno Orchestra.
