Since 2007, La Jolla Music Society and the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory have collaborated closely in order to broaden public awareness and access to each other’s programs, and to complement each other’s strengths and specialties. LJMS has featured SDYS’ advanced student musicians in performance at SummerFest Under the Stars, Discovery Series Concert Preludes and as featured guests on LJMS’ Community Music Center winter and spring recitals. SDYS has welcomed LJMS’ Community Music Center students into its Balboa Park orchestral program, and provided them with lessons and performance opportunities to grow their talents alongside dedicated young people from across San Diego County. In 2015 the organizations announced the next stage in their partnership with the creation of The Music Institute and the San Diego Youth Symphony Series presented by La Jolla Music Society.

La Jolla Music Society presents the SDYS Chamber Orchestra in two concerts during their 2015-16 Winter Season. Showcasing the incredibly talented student musicians of SDYS’ top ensemble, this residency combines LJMS’ position as a leading presenter of music and dance in Southern California with SDYS’ long tradition of innovative music education programs.
