The Mentor Program features professional musicians from area symphony and university programs that participate in all rehearsals and concerts. Mentors provide sectional instruction and are able to provide one-on-one attention to our musicians. These dynamic individuals supplement the Conductors’ direction.
Over 200 DYS musicians participate in a full Symphony Orchestra, full Concert Orchestra, Advanced Flute Choir, Intermediate Flute Choir and String Orchestra. They range in age from 8 to 18 and represent over 27 Southeast Michigan communities.
The stunning Ford Community & Performing Arts Center is the home venue for the Dearborn Youth Symphony. DYS performs three concerts per season in the 1,200 seat theater, and all rehearsals take place at the Center.
