The Grand Rapids Youth Symphony was formed in 1959 by the Grand Rapids Symphony as a means for West Michigan’s most talented young musicians to rehearse and perform togehter under demanding professional standards. For more than 60 years, the GRYS has been part of and administered by the GRS. The GRYS provides these exceptional musicians with opportunities for in-depth stufy of difficult orchestral repertoire, sectional coaching by leading professional musicians, concert perforamnces in fine acoustical halls, chamber ensemble training, and an annual Skip Gates Concerto Competition.

The 2019 Festival of the Arts program will feature several movements from Gustav Holst’s The Planets, as well as additional selections.
