International Youth Symphony

The annual International Youth Symphony is a partnership between SDYS and Rotary District 5340 International Youth Exchange that brings musicians from across the globe together with SDYS’ most advanced musicians for a two-week intensive music experience.


In July 2016, we will celebrate the 12th annual International Youth Symphony. Over fifteen international musicians join eighteen SDYS students to create a unique orchestra, comprised of exceptionally talented student musicians led by SDYS Music Director Jeff Edmons for two weeks of rehearsals and a variety of recitals and concerts in the community.


The 2016 International Youth Symphony performances will include an outdoor concert as part of the Twilight in the Park in Spreckels Organ Pavilion, a Classical Concert at the Center Theater at California Center for the Arts in Escondido and a opening performing of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest in Ellen Scripps Park, La Jolla.
