Lancaster County Youth Symphony

For the 2017-2018 season, Lancaster County Youth Symphony will be administered by Allegro Orchestra Lancaster in conjunction with Allegretto Youth Orchestra.  During this interim year, Allegro will be conducting a study on youth orchestras in the region and determining the next best step for programming moving forward.  

Lancaster County Youth Symphony is comprised primarily by grades 9-12 and geared towards students who are developing well, but not quite ready for the rigors of Allegretto.
