Youth Ensemble Leaders
Whether a conductor, administrator or parent advocate - we know you work with the most passionate and committed young musicians. While their reasons might be different, they go well beyond their school or private lessons to be part of something special. Your Houston Symphony wants to support you and compliment your efforts. Through providing resources and opportunities, we are here so that you can take your students to higher levels. Explore ways we can be of service to you.
Each year, a Houston-area Youth Orchestra gets to play alongside the Houston Symphony musicians for a side-by-side performance at the Salute to Educators Concert, performing substantial pieces in the orchestral repertoire.
Youth ensembles gain performance experience before Houston Symphony Concerts throughout the season by participating in our Symphony Spotlight program.
A Houston-area student chorus group performs during a Houston Symphony Family Concert each Spring, typically for the Disney-themed concert.
Youth Orchestra members are avid participants in our competitions, like the HSL Concerto Competition, many of whom win the chance to perform a concerto with the Houston Symphony.
