As stated on the CSO's website:
The Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra, under the direction of new CSO Assistant Conductor Eric Dudley, is made up of students in grades 9–12 who represent over 30 high schools in southwestern Ohio, southeastern Indiana, and northern Kentucky.
Founded in 1964 by former CSO Music Director Max Rudolf and area music educators, the CSYO is dedicated to the cultivation of talent and provides outstanding young instrumentalists the opportunity to perform repertoire not normally available through their school music programs.
Rehearsals. Students attend weekly rehearsals at the College-Conservatory of Music, are invited to attend CSO concerts at Music Hall, study with CSO musicians in sectionals held several times throughout the season, and give concert performances, often with peer soloists chosen through the CSYO Concerto Competition.
Tickets for this 10:15 am concert are available in advance only; call (513)381-3300 for pricing and program information.
