International Youth Symphony

The annual International Youth Symphony is a partnership between SDYS and Rotary District 5340 International Youth Exchange that brings musicians from across the globe together with SDYS' most advanced musicians for a two-week intensive music experience.

In July 2015, we celebrated the 11th annual International Youth Symphony. Over thirteen international musicians joined eighteen SDYS students to create a unique orchestra, comprised of exceptionally talented student musicians led by SDYS Music Director Jeff Edmons for two weeks of rehearsals and a variety of recitals and concerts in the community.

This year's performances included an outdoor concert as part of the Twilight in the Park in Spreckels Organ Pavilionand a Classical Concert at the Center Theater at California Center for the Arts in Escondido.
