A partnership between Vanderbilt's Blair School of Music and the Nashville Symphony, the Curb Youth Symphony consists of Middle Tennessee’s most talented and accomplished young musicians. CYS is open to students in 8th through 12th grades by audition.
Members of this orchestra will have the opportunity to work with both Nashville Symphony members and Blair School of Music faculty members in sectional rehearsals and master classes, and to participate in special joint programs with the Nashville Symphony, including the annual Side-by-Side Concert.
