The Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras (CSYO), founded in 1961, provide training for young musicians in a professional symphony atmosphere. Over 180 young musicians from more than 60 schools in the greater Charlotte area are involved in the youth orchestras program.

This year over 325 students auditioned for seats in one of the two youth orchestras. Each group rehearses weekly and one rehearsal a month is devoted to coaching sessions provided by members of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. Charlotte Symphony Music Director Christopher Warren-Green makes rehearsal appearances as well. 

Financial aid and scholarships for tuition and private instruction are provided by the Symphony Guild of Charlotte.
