Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras
Founded in 1961, the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras provide training for young musicians in a professional symphony atmosphere. Led by Charlotte Symphony violinist Dr. Ernest Pereira, the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestra and Junior Youth Orchestra involve nearly 200 young musicians from over 60 schools in the Charlotte area. Serving students from fourth through twelfth grades, the two youth orchestras rehearse weekly and receive intensive coaching from Charlotte Symphony musicians.
