The FSYO is a talented group of approximately 27 students in grades 6-12, primarily from Florence but including members from the extended Pee Dee Region. The FSYO offers students an important ensemble outlet for their musical abilities, which have a demonstrated benefit on academic outcomes. Students who learn to play an instrument develop advanced motor skills, learn to socialize with all types of people and obtain a respect for history, hard-work and the importance of practice, perseverance, and patience.

In addition, through its outreach, the FSYO exposes thousands of other children in the area to classical music and orchestral instruments.

The FSYO is a branch of the Florence Symphony Orchestra.

The FSYO is currently seeking strings and french horn players.

Please email the following to florencesymphonyyouth@gmail.com to audition:

1) A recording of the student playing a solo (mp3 or video format is acceptable)

2) A recording of the student playing C, D and G scales
