The Ojai Youth Symphony consists of three ensembles. Each ensemble performs at least three times a year at the end of each trimester.
Ojai Strings is a string ensemble for elementary school students as young as age six. Music reading is helpful but not necessary. Students play mostly in unison and work on ensemble skills.
Rehearsals are 4-5pm Mondays.
The Ojai Youth Symphony is a full orchestra with winds, brass, strings and percussion for advanced high school students. Students play music from the standard orchestral repertoire.
An audition is required for this ensemble.
Rehearsals are 6:30-8:30pm on Mondays.
Sinfonia is a full string orchestra for students in middle school. Students perform string arrangements of standard orchestral repertoire. Most students have studied privately for 3-5 years.
Rehearsals are 5:15-6:15 Mondays
