Welcome to the Hyde Park Youth Symphony! We are thrilled that you have decided to join the HPYS family. We welcome our returning students as well as new families to an exciting season under the direction of our Music Director Matthew Sheppard. We look forward to offering your child a rich and rewarding experience.

A tuition fee is due at the start of the season unless arrangements are made with the Treasurer. Payment plans and financial assistance are available but must be applied for before the start of the season. Tuition fees are shown below and more details can be found on the Tuition Policy page.
For questions about scholarship opportunities please contact us.


Youth Symphony $495.00/year
String Orchestra $430.00/year
Preparatory Strings  $365.00/year

Prompt payments allow us to offer the best service we can to our students. In addition to tuition, we ask that parents volunteer their time for at least one season cycle of their choice to help keep the cost of operations low. When you applied for auditions, you were asked to submit the Membership Application Form. Visit our Volunteer webpage to register to volunteer.

Please keep the Membership Application information current so that we may keep in contact with you, especially in cases of emergency.
