Welcome to the 2015-2016 Season!

The San Jose Youth Symphony gives young people a foundation for life through orchestral music. We create programs that assure young musicians achieve technical proficiency, musical knowledge and an emotional connection to music. We strive to make each performance for the community uplifting, spirited and exciting.

 The Nutcracker


The San Jose Youth Symphony rejoins the Los Gatos Ballet at the Flint Center this holiday season for another exciting production of The Nutcracker! Featuring guest artists from the acclaimed San Francisco Ballet and with a live orchestra including members of the Philharmonic and local musicians, this production showcases some of the finest youth and professional talent in the Bay Area!
