The Greater Miami Youth Symphony Summer Program began in 2007 in response to “a lot of requests from our parents, students, and community”, says Dr. Lesniak, Executive Director of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. Today, the GMYS Summer Program is divided into three levels- Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. It serves over 300 students from South Florida, enriching their musical knowledge through a demanding two to six week course during which they play in orchestra, chamber groups, and instrumental classes in addition to electives such as music theory, ear training, sight reading, etc.
The Greater Miami Youth Symphony is an independent six-level orchestra program dedicated to training young musicians between 5 and 18 years of age. Conceived as a complementary facet to music instruction in the schools, GMYS has continuously succeeded in presenting high caliber performances to South Florida audiences. Today, GMYS serves over 800 youth during the school year and over 300 in the summer months.
