The CSO Youth Orchestras have more than doubled in size and now include a Symphony Orchestra, a Philharmonic Orchestra, and an Etude String Orchestra and Prelude String Orchestra.

OCT. 8: NO REHEARSAL – Hamilton County Fall Break

The CSOYO will not hold regular rehearsals on Monday, October 8, 2018 due to HCDE Fall Break and the closure of the CSAS Building. However, on Monday, October 15, even though students are official still on break that day, the building will be open for a teacher professional development day and we WILL have rehearsal.

Please note that if your fall break occurs during a different week other than HCDE, and your plans take you out of town, your absence from rehearsal will be counted as one of the two allowed absences during the Fall Concert cycle per the CSOYO Attendance policy.


OCT. 15: YES REHEARSAL – see note above.

CSOYO T-shirts will be available at this rehearsal. Please try to arrive a little early to allow time for check-in and picking up your t-shirt, so that we can still start rehearsals on time at 6:00 PM. Thank you!




OCT. 29: DRESS-UP NIGHT – Wear your Concert Dress!

In preparation for the upcoming Fall Concert, we will be checking everyone’s Concert Dress on October 29 to make sure that all musicians are in compliance with the CSOYO Concert Dress Code. More details will be coming later in the month, but students will be asked to wear their concert dress to rehearsal for inspection. Please review the CSOYO Dress Code found on this website and be sure that your concert outfit meets all requirements between now and Oct. 29. If you have any questions, please contact the CSOYO Manager for help.
