About Us


The HSYO mission is to cultivate the artistic development of students through high quality and affordable music education and performance. To create the opportunity for area youth to develop a lifelong love of music-making. To challenge every musician to pursue musical excellence.  The HSYO provides string instrument instruction to youth ages 20 years old and younger, as an individual and as part of an ensemble. 

Our vision is to make string music education and performance available to youth for whom string instrument instruction and ensemble performance opportunities are either unavailable or unaffordable.

Our programs include instrument instruction workshops, performance ensembles based on skill level, and concerts and public performances. We will offer scholarships and tuition free opportunities for those who are unable to afford enrollment fees. We will work with area music groups and artists to enhance the musical growth experience for HSYO participants.  

At times and per the discretion of the board of directors, we will provide internships and volunteer opportunities to increase community involvement in the arts.

The Holly Strings Youth Orchestra is a non-profit corporation and shall be operated exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the corresponding section of any future corresponding tax code.
