Flint Youth Symphony Orchestra
The Flint Youth Symphony Orchestra (FYSO) is made up of string, wind, brass, percussion, piano and harp players. Together this dynamic group rehearses and performs a variety of exciting music – from classical to pops. They rehearse on Tuesday evenings mid-September through early May. Each season, the FYSO performs joint concerts with area high school bands and orchestras and a solo concert at The Whiting. In January 2017, they co-hosted and performed at the Mid-Michigan Band and Orchestra Festival at The Whiting. On February 8th, 2018, the orchestra will present four “Meet the Orchestra!” Children’s Concerts, also at The Whiting.
Travel and exchange opportunities abound with the FYSO. The orchestra has developed relationships with the Limonest Youth Orchestra and Courbevoie Youth Orchestra (France), Great Island Fiddlers and Cork County Youth Orchestra (Ireland) and Gunma (Japan) Junior Philharmonic. Every other year, the group travels to one of those countries to perform with those orchestras and others. The FYSO toured Ireland in 2014, France in 2016 and plans to tour England and France in Spring 2018.
FYSO meets weekly September 18 - May 7. Contact FSPA office regarding available openings.
