Inspiring Musicians of tomorrow

In the early 1980s, the Sheboygan Symphony and the Sheboygan Area School District partnered to form the Sheboygan Symphony Youth Orchestra. The youth symphony has a rich history of talented musicians, dedicated conductors and tireless volunteers. Many of its current and former members have performed with the Sheboygan Symphony and many other orchestras across the nation. 

Our newest ensemble, Sinfonia, began its first season in 2012 as a small string orchestra. Since then, Sinfonia has expanded to include woodwinds, brass and percussion, offering a high-quality full-orchestra experience. 

The Concert Orchestra continues to grow artistically. This group was founded in 1982 as a full orchestra of about 35 musicians under the leadership of co-conductors, Debbie Williamson and Lewis Schmidt. Today, the Concert Orchestra has grown to over 70 musicians, representing 19 different communities and 29 different schools, including many home-schooled students. Both Sinfonia and Concert Orchestra SSYO is under the direction of Molly Lieberman.
