Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Rappahannock Youth Symphony, which serves the greater Fredericksburg, VA area. We have 3 orchestras from the beginning to the advanced levels.

Mission Statement

The primary purpose of the Rappahannock Youth Symphony is to provide young dedicated musicians the opportunity to develop advanced ensemble and performance skills that will enable them to grow to their fullest potential as musicians and performers.  The RYS is dedicated to nurturing young talent and enriching the community through the performance of music.

History  

The Rappahannock Youth Orchestra was founded in 1996 by Mrs. Deborah Tripp as a 501(c) 3 organization, with the idea in mind to offer an additional challenge to the more advanced player.  The orchestras were founded as a supplement to the school programs and served to raise the standard of playing in public, private, and home schools.  Since 1996 the RYO/RYS has given opportunities to young people from the ages of 10-18 (in the Greater Fredericksburg Area) to excel in the performance of community concerts.  The young people become members who enjoy both the educational and social benefits that RYS extends to them.  These members especially enjoy meeting other young people with similar interests and talents.
