Mission Statement

The purpose of the Norwalk Youth Symphony is to enrich the lives of young people within a musical community.

We provide the finest possible training, practice and performance opportunities, enabling our students to learn, share and enjoy the power of music.

In partnership with parents, teachers, and schools we:

  • Provide exposure to diverse orchestral styles under the guidance of musical professionals,
  • Identify and educate motivated students regardless of financial circumstance,
  • Foster a sense of achievement and self-esteem through a developmental approach, and
  • Promote self-discipline and teamwork through respect for artistic standards.
