The Syracuse youth orchestras are part of the Community Music Division of the Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. The SYO is conducted by James R. Tapia, and the SYSO is conducted by Muriel Bodley.
The Syracuse youth orchestras consist of middle and high school student musicians from Central New York. Playing in these ensembles helps students grow musically and intellectually and learn discipline and teamwork that will benefit them throughout life.
