Each year, The Symphony Guild of Charlotte provides tuition assistance and private study assistance to qualified applicants who have accepted positions in the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras. Tuition assistance is based on financial need and helps to defray the tuition due to the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.  Private study scholarships are  need-based grants that help to provide assistance to eligible CSYO and JYO musicians for private music instruction on their instrument.

The youth orchestra program uses an online software program called Charms Office   Assistant to manage all aspects of our organization including: member contact information, billing, fundraising, forms, etc.  

You will receive an email by July 1 with your login information. At that time, all families will need to login to their student account to verify their information.
