Salem Youth Symphony

Orchestras

How to Enroll

We’re delighted that you’ve decided to join one of the four Salem Youth Symphony ensembles!

To enroll in Amadeus Players, Philharmonia, or Youth Symphony, you need to have completed your audition. The Mozart Players do not need to audition. All musicians are expected to participate in their school instrumental music programs, when such programs exist. By participating in a school instrumental music program, students benefit by playing every day, become better sight-readers, and play an important part in helping to build meaningful music programs in the schools and communities.

School Music Ensemble Participation Requirement

Salem Youth Symphony, in support of public and private school music programs, requires students to be enrolled in a musical ensemble offered at their school for their instrument.  Wind and percussion instrumentalists will participate in their school band program.  String instrumentalists will participate in their school orchestra program.  The policy does not apply to students whose educational setting does not offer a musical ensemble for their instrument.  

The Handbook

This two-page Handbook explains some of the basic expectations that the Salem Youth Symphony has for its members. Please read this document before joining the Salem Youth Symphony.
