Since 1945, San Diego Youth Symphony (SDYS) has given thousands of musicians the opportunity to study and perform classical repertoire at a highly advanced level. It is the sixth oldest continuously operating youth orchestra in the United States and the resident youth orchestra in the City of San Diego's historic Balboa Park. SDYS' program has grown during the thirteen-year tenure of Artistic Director Jeff Edmons from one orchestra to three advanced symphony orchestras and four large ensembles for students at the intermediate and introductory levels. In addition, the organization now trains over fifty students of all levels in chamber music, including string quartets and octet, wind and brass ensembles, advanced percussion, and jazz.
