Mission Statement

The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra is an integral member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra family and a vigorous part of the cultural fabric of the community. The ASYO strives for national preeminence among youth orchestras, while cultivating the artistic growth and excellence of its members through enriching orchestral experiences and mentoring by ASO musicians.

Established in 1974 and celebrating 40 years of music excellence, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra provides Atlanta’s most talented and dedicated students an outlet to perform masterworks. Each year, more than three hundred instrumentalists rising eighth to rising twelfth graders audition for one of 120 seats in the orchestra.
