All three orchestras — the Youth Symphony, the Youth Philharmonic, and Premiere Strings — will perform rotationally throughout the event.
The Winston-Salem Symphony Youth Orchestras is part of the Winston-Salem Symphony and includes about 130 student musicians.
The Winston-Salem Symphony Youth Orchestras are currently comprised of three full orchestras for aspiring musicians in the first through twelfth grades: the Premiere Strings, a 20-30 member strings only orchestra for young musicians who are new to the experience of playing in an ensemble with a conductor, the Youth Philharmonic for intermediate level students and the Youth Symphony for more advanced students. Each full orchestra consists of 60 to 75 members and performs several public concerts annually as well as occasional concerts for special audiences.
