TCSYO SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA
is the premier orchestra of TCSYO. The Symphonic Orchestra strives for musical excellence and the development of poise and confidence in each musician through the joy of music making. The SO provides a distinguished orchestral experience designed to motivate and enhance musical talent and cultivate individual growth through the rehearsal and performance of renowned orchestral repertoire while offering unparalleled musical training and professional performance opportunities to musicians of all abilities. The orchestra performs four (4) concerts at Schlesinger Concert Hall

SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA separates itself from other youth orchestras in the Washington D.C. area through its unique rehearsal configuration. It alternates weeks of intense sectionals during the first half of the rehearsal, at which time the woodwinds, brass and percussion sections work with TCSYO’s artistic specialists. The string students benefit from these sessions as well working with violinist/conductor Dr. Cheri Collins on ensemble playing techniques, left-hand fluency, and right-hand music making, giving students the opportunity to achieve a high level of musicianship over the shortest period of time. TCSYO’s distinct focus is on student learning and giving our musicians a commanding perception of orchestral ensemble playing. All musicians must pass an audition to be accepted to the SYMPHONC ORCHESTRA. Auditions are required and will be scheduled after a completed registration form has been received.
