Celebrating a New Partnership between the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory and the La Jolla Music Society!

Chamber music lives and breathes by the collaboration between members of an ensemble. Each player supports the others and utilizes their strengths to create a vibrant and rewarding performance. La Jolla Music Society (LJMS) and the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory (SDYS) have taken this idea to heart as we embark on a significant expansion of our already rich and productive relationship.

Since 2007, LJMS and SDYS have collaborated closely in order to broaden public awareness and access to each other's programs, and to complement each other's strengths and specialties. LJMS has featured SDYS' advanced student musicians in performance at SummerFest Under the Stars, Discovery Series Concert Preludes, and as featured guests on LJMS’ Community Music Center winter and spring recitals. SDYS has welcomed Community Music Center students into its Balboa Park orchestral program, and provided them with lessons and performance opportunities to grow their talents alongside dedicated young people from across San Diego County.

On behalf of both organizations, we would like to invite you to a very special Kickoff Event celebrating the launch of two exciting – and unique – new arts education programs.

La Jolla Music Society presents the SDYS Chamber Orchestra in Concert

LJMS will showcase the incredibly talented student musicians of SDYS’ Chamber Orchestra both with featured soloists and emerging composers. This residency combines LJMS’ position as a leading presenter of music and dance in Southern California with SDYS’ long tradition of innovative music education programs.

The Music Institute

This program will combine the strengths of SDYS' long track record as the premier music education program for youth in San Diego, and LJMS' position as the foremost presenter of classical music, jazz, and dance in the area. San Diego's most musically talented students will receive college-level instruction in music theory and history, as well as master classes and career development advice in encounters with visiting artists.
