The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians to broaden technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents individually and for their audiences.
Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual Concerto Competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.
Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program, to enter a college level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professionals, or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.
During its 27-year history, the orchestra alumni have been selected for highly-competitive auditions to attend major conservatories and university programs. Students often opt to continue their music studies in college, in addition to other academic majors.
The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization and is composed of the most talented student musicians from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and northern Palm Beach counties. The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Dr. John Enyart, Ben Enyart and Thomas Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees and private and corporate support.
