The mission of the Venice Symphony Youth Orchestra is to provide students an opportunity for high-quality instruction in an ensemble setting while enriching the communities of Venice and the neighboring areas.
The program consists of two performing ensembles with rehearsals taking place at Building 42, behind the Venice Performing Arts Center on the VHS campus. The VSYO will convene for the Fall season in September 2021.

Concert Strings – Welcoming students in 3rd through 8th grades, with two to three year of experience playing, developing positions, and interested in performing in an ensemble. Rehearsals are held Fridays from 4:30 to 6 pm. Director: Nicole Rawley.
