Youth Programs

The Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra is committed to sharing our love of music with future generations of musicians.


The AlphaSO strives to grow young area musicians who share our love for orchestral music through two main initiatives:  the annual Youth Concerto Competition, hosted by the adult orchestra each fall, and the Alpharetta Youth Symphony Orchestra (AlphaYSO).

The Youth Concerto Competition is open to students of piano, woodwinds, brass, and strings, grades K-12, who are residents of Georgia.  Winners of the competition are invited to perform as guest soloists with the Alpharetta Symphony Orchestra. Information and an application to participate can be found on this website by clicking the link above.


The Alpharetta Youth Symphony Orchestra (AlphaYSO) was introduced in 2019 and is open by audition to primarily middle through high school students.  The orchestra provides a fun and professional musical experience for students in the Northeastern Atlanta region, and each concert season also features a youth competition opportunity.  Click the link above to learn more and join. 


Come be a part of our youth programs where you'll meet other area musicians who share your interests.   We invite you to grow with us and have fun making exceptional music together!
