Dearborn Youth Symphony (DYS)

Over 200 DYS musicians participate in a full Symphony Orchestra, full Concert Orchestra, Advanced Flute Choir, Intermediate Flute Choir, and String Orchestra. The mission of the Dearborn Youth Symphony is to foster instrumental music and ensemble experience in young performers. DYS has since become an integral step to greater musical achievement for many youth musicians in the Metropolitan Detroit area. By complementing the musical efforts of school programs and private instructors, the DYS builds more opportunities and greater appreciation for instrumental music in the community. Through the sponsorship of the City of Dearborn Recreation and Parks Department, parental volunteers and gifted conductors, the DYS continues to nurture and challenge young musicians.
