Watch: Fall Festival Dazzles at Orchestra Hall

All 10 orchestras performed at Orchestra Hall on November 13 and 14 to kickoff GTCYS’ 50th anniversary season of concerts. Our students were overjoyed to perform for in-person audiences again! It was made extra special by GTCYS’ founding artistic director Dr. William LaRue Jones returning to conduct a fanfare in honor of GTCYS’ co-founder Henry Charles Smith. Congratulations to all musicians on wonderful performances! We are so grateful to our families, volunteers, staff, educators, donors, and community members for their support. If you want to relive the magic, Fall Festival is available to watch on GTCYS’ YouTube channel above. Plus, check out the photo album from the weekend.

Audition for GTCYS!

GTCYS auditions are opportunities for students to play their instruments so we can get to know them and match them with one of our ten school-year orchestras for the 2023-24 season. To audition for GTCYS, students register online, record a video, and submit an audition online.
