UNH Youth Symphony Orchestras

The University of New Hampshire Youth Symphony Orchestra (UNH-YSO) has provided quality orchestral experiences to string students in the NH seacoast region, southern Maine, and northeastern Massachusetts since 2013. By providing quality musical instruction and high standards of rigor, the UNH-YSO seeks to help students in Grades 4-12 develop their technical capabilities and musical understanding. Visit UNH-YSO to learn more.

For Fall of 2020, the YSO will be entirely online. There will be online rehearsals and Zoom visits with special guests. Specific information will be sent to enrolled families by the YSO director.

Please note: The UNH-YSO is a pre-admission program. Only students who have completed an audition and received an offer of placement in the program may register. All students must audition each year, including returning members. DO NOT register and pay tuition without first completing an audition, as tuition payments are non-refundable. To schedule an audition, please email david.upham@unh.edu
