Youth Orchestra


Robert J. Seebacher, Music Director/Conductor
Orland Thomas, Conductor Emeritus
Timothy Beattie, Assistant Conductor

The mission of the Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra is to offer young instrumental musicians throughout the Gulf Coast community an opportunity for growth and development by preparing, studying, and performing various genres of orchestral literature.  The Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra provides string, brass, woodwind, and percussion students with instruction from highly qualified professional musicians. They experience the orchestral repertoire and improve their skills by working with other young artists, local musicians, and world-renowned guest soloists. Additionally MSYO musicians learn that participation in a group endeavor offers an experience far greater than one might achieve individually.

Inquiries about auditioning for and membership in the Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra, as well as general information, should be directed to Rob Seebacher at 251-432-2010 or The MSYO is comprised of middle school, high school, and early collegiate students through the age of 21. Its members reside across the Gulf Coast region. For concert information, please call the Mobile Symphony Box Office at 251-432-2010
