As Sacramento’s foremost orchestral youth organization, we aspire to become the region’s most influential community for the advancement of talent and music appreciation among youth. Now entering our 63rd year, the Sacramento Youth Symphony offers orchestral training to young musicians, from fledgling through pre-professional levels directed by some of the most acclaimed conductors and teachers in the region.

I am thrilled and honored to be joining the SYS team. As a young musician growing up in Sacramento, I was one of the many players to be inspired by my time in SYS. I am really excited to join the team and continue the fantastic work that has been done by Maestro Neumann.  I look forward to getting to know all of the SYS community and to all of the great music we will make together!
