The Amarillo Youth Symphony serves the most talented young musicians in the Panhandle. Admission for all musicians is by audition only. This prestigious group has performed at the Texas State capitol and the Texas Association of Symphony orchestras convention. Member musicians are enrolled in their school's orchestra or band program, if one exists. This group is directed by Mark Bartley.
The Amarillo Youth Symphony rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 2-4:30 during the school year at Amarillo College's Washington Street Campus in the Music Building.
