In 2016, the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra will launch the Montgomery Symphony Academy of Music, a new music education program designed to allow young musicians the opportunity to study violin, viola and cello. The program will offer musical instruction, mentorship, and performance experience while affording numerous opportunities for involved youth and families to attend MSO concerts. The program cost is $200 for the entire year which also includes tickets to MSO concerts and events. Please complete an online scholarship form below, should you need financial assistance.

Through the launch of the Montgomery Symphony Academy of Music we will offer two new String Ensembles: a (Beginners) Preparatory String and (Intermediate) Youth Chamber Orchestra. It is with full intentions that these students will become prepared to audition and perform with our established (Advanced) Montgomery Youth Orchestra. Ultimately, it is also a long-term goal that some of these students may continue the study of music and return to us as members of the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra.
