CYSO offers four ensembles

Philharmonia: This group introduces wind instruments into a string ensemble. Students work on full orchestra repertoire as well as strings-only compositions. This is an excellent starting point for full orchestra experience.

SymphonyA full symphony orchestra composed of our most skilled musicians. The Symphony works on the most advanced orchestra literature available.

CYSO Spectrum EnsembleThis small conductor-less ensemble includes some of the most advanced players from our Symphony orchestra and is coached by Angie Dombrowski. The group performs frequently in locations including the lobbies for Colorado Ballet, Colorado Symphony, Opera Colorado, as well as the State Capitol, art galleries, and other locations. Students learn and perform a large range of repertoire such as Grieg’s Holberg Suite, Mozart Divertimento, K. 136, and Nielsen’s Suite for Strings. Rehearsals are scheduled generally once a month, often on Sunday nights.


Wind Ensemble: All wind and brass players work with their conductor during the last hour of Monday rehearsals on chamber music specifically arranged to further their wind ensemble skills. The wind ensemble will perform chamber pieces on each CYSO concert.
