The Naperville Youth Symphony Orchestra (NYSO) believes in the intrinsic and progressive power of the art of music to inspire not only musicians but the people and communities that surround them. Music circumvents all boundaries and serves as a catalyst to bridge our differences. It is our mission to serve young musicians by providing innovative classical training and exposure to varying musical genres culminating in high level performances to thrill both performer and audience. We are committed to instilling standards of excellence while providing an atmosphere of racial, cultural, and socio-economic inclusiveness. Music is an experience for the young and mature musician in correlation with the audience alike; we strive to commit this art not only for the present generation experience but for the future generation as well. This is why we do it. This is what we believe.
