SYMS - Summer Youth Music School

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are disappointed to report that both the Jr. and Sr. Sessions of UNH Summer Youth Music School (SYMS) have been cancelled for the 2020 summer season to ensure the health and safety of our participants and staff. Due to the nature of our program, we are unable to guarantee that all appropriate social distancing and safety measures could be successfully maintained in our environment. All camp fees paid to UNH SYMS will be refunded in full. We do hope that you will continue to make music this summer and that your campers will join us next summer as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary.

Students concentrate on a major instrument or voice part and choose electives to broaden their experience. They associate with talented young musicians who share their excitement about music, and they study with outstanding teachers and freelance artists. Enrollment for certain instruments may be limited.

In addition to concert bands, a variety of choruses, a string orchestra, and a full orchestra, we offer master classes, small ensembles, jazz groups, and other opportunities designed to improve each student's technique and musical understanding. Stimulating and challenging classes are available to students at all levels. Private lessons, at additional cost, are available to interested students.

Students and faculty members give a variety of evening recitals throughout the sessions. Each session concludes with a final concert.
