About WYSO
Founded in 1981, the Westmoreland Youth Symphony Philharmonic, Morrie Brand, director, provides talented young area musicians with a high quality orchestral experience. Since many area school districts do not have active orchestra programs, WYSO Philharmonic is the only orchestral performance outlet for many area players. If you are a high school student, we encourage you to audition. Enjoy learning and performing great music taken from the wide, wonderful orchestral repertoire – imagine the experience of making music with a group of peers who share your love of the art! Attend weekly rehearsals; sectionals will be spaced throughout the year.

WYSO rehearses on Wednesday evenings beginning February 10- May 11  from 6:30-8:45 p.m. at the Greensburg Garden and Civic Center in  Greensburg (located at 951 Old Salem Road). Coaching sessions are provided by Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra members and other area professional musicians. Tuition: $205
