In-State Tours

Each year, Opus One, Sinfonietta, Concert Orchestra, and Philharmonia Orchestra members enjoy a day’s outing traveling on a coach bus to statewide destinations to perform concerts in schools, and community centers. These one day tours give students an opportunity to share their talents with enthusiastic audiences around the state.

Regional Tours

On March 11, 2017, the WYSO Philharmonia Orchestra toured to Minneapolis, MN to perform with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies Philharmonic. This special overnight tour featured combined rehearsals and a performance along with a master class by GTCYS Artistic Director, Mark Russell Smith and a visit to the Mall of America.
