April 29 – May 1

CYE50 logo warm 150Fifty years ago, on January 31, 1971, the Detroit Symphony Youth Orchestra took the stage for its inaugural concert. This moment was a spark that ignited a refreshed legacy of music education at the DSO that now lives within fourteen classical and jazz ensembles that make up Civic Youth Ensembles (CYE).

We invite you to join us April 29-May 1, 2022 as we celebrate an incredible 50 years and look ahead to even brighter possibilities!
