Entrance is by audition only. String players must demonstrate facility above 1st position and in keys up to 4 sharps and 4 flats. Woodwind and Brass players must be at the level to make All-Region Band and Orchestra.

The Youth Orchestra is conducted by Gabriel Bruce.

 The Youth Orchestra consists of the most advanced string, woodwind, brass and percussion players from around the state. Entrance is by audition only and for those whose audition demonstrates familiarity with advanced techniques, in order to perform the standard orchestra repertoire.  Musicians in this group consistently place at the top of the All-State Band and Orchestra Competition and are leaders in their schools and communities.
