Mission Statement

We are dedicated to providing a quality orchestral program for talented high school and middle school musicians where they can learn the art of orchestral performance, enhance their personal music skills, and grow as individuals. In addition, GCYO provides family friendly concerts for the community and out reach concerts to less advanced and less advantaged middle school students.


Greenville County Youth Orchestras (GCYO) is the after school orchestras program of Greenville County Schools. Each year, GCYO has close to 300 students participating in our 5 ensembles. The experience level of the students ranges from beginners in the Jr. Sinfonia ensemble to near professional in the Young Artist Orchestra. Performances take place in the Peace Center’s Gunter Theatre, the Kroc Center, and local high school auditoriums. Each year the Spring Orchestras Concert takes place at the Peace Center Concert Hall with all five ensembles performing.
