Katy has been recognized as one of the fastest growing communities in the nation and as a hub for music education. The Katy Youth Symphony, KYS, is a natural outgrowth of this vibrant and growing community. The Katy Youth Symphony is committed to bring our children together to learn, grow, play, and serve close to home where friends and family can support and enjoy their performances and grow in civic pride and music appreciation.
Students grades 4-12 Katy and its surrounding community whether from public, private, or home based school environments are welcome to register. Students in grades 4-6 need a minimum of one-year playing experience and a private instructor.
All public school applicants are required to participate in their school's band or orchestra if there is one. A student who does not participate in their school's program may join provided their school's Music Director or Principal is willing to sign a school participation waver.
