The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Strings was established in 1982 with the support of Mrs. Virginia Kettering, to provide musical enrichment and advanced concert experience for string students in grade 6-12. The ensemble is comprised of 65 students representing homeschools and 26 different schools from the greater Dayton area.
Students in the Youth Strings will perform challenging original string literature. Regularly performing Winter and Fall concerts, DPYS often performs additional concerts throughout the year for senior centers and at community events.
The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, Dayton Philharmonic Youth Strings, and Dayton Philharmonic Junior Strings were founded to inspire an overall cultural awareness and appreciation of music in its members and audiences, strengthen our region’s existing school music programs, and stimulate interest in the development of school orchestral programs where none exist.
