We create a welcoming and encouraging opportunity for young musicians, middle school age through high school, to grow, contribute, and develop their talents, with other like-minded students from the Shoreline towns in central coastal Connecticut.
Shoreline Youth Symphony Orchestras are comprised of three orchestras.

We play the great classical symphonic music as well as original contemporary compositions for orchestra. Our mission is to offer a high quality musical experience in orchestral playing for young musicians.
