The Lincoln Youth Symphony was organized in 1957 by the Lincoln Public Schools (Lincoln, NE) in order to give talented musicians the opportunity to extend their orchestral music performance. Membership is available to students in grade 9-12 in the City of Lincoln and is by audition only. The orchestra rehearses once each week for two and a half hours during the school year and performs three or more times a year.

Upcoming Events

Auditions are Tuesday, May 2 for new hopefuls (4:00 to 7:00) and returning 1st-year woodwind, brass and percussion players, and May 4 for returning first-year string players (4:00 to 6:00). Players request an audition time and be specific as to the preferred times by contact Clark Potter at cpotter1@unl.edu. Auditions are at Lincoln High School. Check in outside room 132. Please find the audition music at the 2017-2018 Auditions page.
