The conductors of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony are Mr. Enyart, founder, Ben Enyart and Mr. Servinsky. The orchestra is funded by performance proceeds, orchestra membership fees, and private and corporate support.
The youth symphony provides challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians, to broaden their technical skills and artistic expression, instill professionalism and enhance enjoyment of musical talents individually and for their audiences.
Members of the orchestra may choose to compete in the annual concerto competition. The winner of this competition has the privilege of performing his or her piece with the orchestra during the spring concert season.
Each year the orchestra awards scholarships and grants to several of its young musicians. The scholarships are used by orchestra members to continue music education during a summer music program or to enter a college-level musical curriculum in the fall, to obtain private lessons from professional or to assist in the purchase of musical instruments.
