Conroe Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO)

Join the Conroe Symphony Youth Orchestra!


The Conroe Symphony Orchestra is pleased to offer two youth orchestras during the school year and youth music camps in the summer months:  the Beginner Strings and the Intermediate Orchestra.  The Beginner Strings provides entry-level musicians with string instrument basics. The Intermediate Orchestra is for students with at least one year of playing experience, providing comprehensive ensemble experience. The purpose of the Conroe Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO) is to offer young musicians in the Montgomery County area music instruction that is challenging, fun, and affordable. The CSYO welcomes members from all area school districts and home-school students.

Both the Beginner Strings and Intermediate Orchestra are under the direction of Alfredo “Freddy” Olivera de la Vega.  Hailing from Argentina, Freddy has been studying music since he was twelve years of age, participating in classical guitar duets, rock band, violin ensembles, symphony orchestras and performing a variety of music styles (rock & roll, heavy metal, blues, Celtic, country, folk, and of course, classical) on various instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass, mandolin, classical and electric guitar, piano).  He came to Texas in 2002 and has since been composing, teaching and performing tirelessly.

Tuition & Fees

Tuition for the 2016-2017 CSYO season is $300.  Payment Plans are available.  Accepted forms of payment include: cash, checks, money orders, VISA and MasterCard.

Financial Aid

The Conroe Symphony Youth Orchestra strives to include all young musicians wanting to achieve higher musicianship regardless of their financial situation.  Because of this, we offer assistance to those in need. Anyone wishing to apply for aid will be asked to fill out a financial aid packet and bring a copy of their 2015 Federal Income Tax Return.
