“It is so important that the students of the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra have the opportunity to work with Music Director Robert Spano and Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles,” said Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Senior Director of Education and Community Engagement Mark Kent. “Both Robert and Donald embrace our students as members of the Atlanta Symphony family. By sharing themselves with these talented young musicians, they elevate the quality of our student training programs and infuse inspiration into the Youth Orchestra’s work.”

Established in 1974, the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra provides Atlanta’s most talented and dedicated students an outlet to perform masterworks. Each year, more than 300 instrumentalists ages 13-18 audition for one of 120 seats in the orchestra. The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra presents three concerts each year, in addition to the Atlanta Symphony Kid’s Christmas concerts, and members have exclusive invitations to participate in readings and master classes with the top artists in the instrumental music industry.
