Alumni News

Hey, CSOYO Alumni:

We'd like to reconnect with you and develop relationships with the many YO Members we've had through the last 35+ years. We're working hard to start some Alumni initiatives under the program name of CODA. 

co·da  /ˈkōdə/  noun,  MUSIC:      the concluding passage of a piece or movement, typically forming an addition to the basic structure.


If the CSOYO experience is the main piece or movement, this is the perfect term to describe our alumni members and the impact they can have on the CSOYO!

We've created an Alumni newsletter called CODA in order to stay in touch. Please check out the Premiere Issue HERE:

CODA October 2021 Newsletter

You're also invited to our Fall Concert on Monday, Nov. 1, 2021 at 7:30 PM at Brainerd Baptist Church. The Philharmonic and Symphony orchestras will be performing, including our 2021 Concerto Competition Winner, Concertmaster Jasper Sewell. A special reception for Alumni Only will follow the concert, and you'll have a chance to meet Jasper and talk with our conductors, Sandy Morris and Ismael Sandoval. There will be refreshments, gifts and a door prize! We hope you'll join us!

Please help us spread the word about this new program by sharing with your YO Alumni friends. The next CODA issue will arrive in January 2022. Alumni who wish to be on our email list for this and other updates should complete the form below to sign up. 

Please reach out to the CSOYO Manager ( any time if you have suggestions or questions! We want to hear from you!
