Young Strings

Designed to increase the diversity of American orchestras, the Dallas Symphony Young Strings program develops the talents of exceptional and underrepresented string players in the city of Dallas by providing its students with the skills, lessons, opportunities, and resources essential for success both in college and careers in music. 

Auditions are in January for string students in grades 6-10 who live or go to school in the city of Dallas.  CLICK HERE to download an application. For more information contact Carolyn Jabr, Young Strings Manager, at, or 214.871.4083.

The DSO Young Strings program holds summer camps for both young violinists and young cellists in August.  These are intensive, week-long workshops, led by DSO professionals, designed to help students progress quickly on their instuments. Both camps are held at the Meyerson Symphony Center.

  • The violin camp is for students in grades 4-8, and runs from August 8-12.
  • The cello camp is for middle and high school students, and runs from August 15-19.
