Scholarship Chamber Music Ensemble Program

The SYSO Scholarship Chamber Ensemble Program provides chamber music coaching, performance opportunities and professional development for talented student chamber music ensembles.

Scholarship Chamber Ensembles serve as ambassadors for the Seattle Youth Symphony by performing public concerts and recitals for community service groups, at Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions Club and other organizations’ meetings, at arts organization functions and in educational outreach programs. In addition, Scholarship Chamber Ensembles are contracted through the SYSO office for professional concert engagements, weddings, parties and ceremonies. Scholarship Chamber Ensembles perform each spring at Benaroya Hall, in the Nordstrom Recital Hall. The goal of the program is to stimulate interest and awareness of the rich and vibrant chamber music repertoire, and to generate performance opportunities for these exceptionally talented young ensembles.

If you are planning a private party, business meeting or corporate event please contact Janice Gatti at (206) 362-2300, or via e-mail at to inquire about engaging one of our Scholarship Chamber Ensembles.

In addition, if you or someone you know is a member of a community service group (like Rotary, Lions Club or Kiwanis) please consider scheduling the Seattle Youth Symphony to visit an upcoming meeting. Our staff has created an informative and engaging presentation that not only highlights the mission, history and future of SYSO, but also includes performances by some of the Pacific Northwest’s most talented young musicians.
