The Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras Parents' Association (CSYOPA) is comprised of the parents of all members of the Charlotte Symphony Youth and Junior Youth Orchestras. It strives to support the students and the organization in every possible way.

All parents are encouraged to attend CSYOPA meetings in order to stay up-to-date with activities and important  information.

The officers of CSYOPA assist in planning trips and in coordinating a number of activities that rely on the volunteer support of all parents of CSYO/JYO students. The executive board communicates regularly with the parents through meetings, newsletters, calls and through messages sent home with the students at their weekly rehearsals.

If you have any questions, contact an officer of the CSYOPA executive board. We are happy to help in any way.
