"The CYSO has played a critical role in ensuring that music is available to our youth. We are proud to have the Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra working to strengthen the arts through music."

     -John Hickenlooper,

 Former Governor of Colorado

"I look forward to my son having the opportunity to be a member of the Colorado Youth Symphony in the future."
      -Jared Polis,

"CYSO encourages kids to develop their talents and sense of identity."
     -Edward Dusinberre,

First Violinist, Takács Quartet

My time in the CYSO was one of the most enjoyable musical experiences of my youth.  Being able to perform with other highly accomplished youth musicians and fantastic guest artists was an irreplaceable and unforgettable experience.  Additionally, CYSO taught me what high standards really look like and, more importantly, how to strive to exceed even those high standards.  We played wonderful and varied repertoire and I still think back fondly at the musical experiences I had with the CYSO.  While I am no longer an active player, I have no doubt that my time in the CYSO is a significant reason I am such an active supporter of the Colorado arts community today.
