Claflin Hill Youth Symphony Orchestra 

Advanced Orchestral Training 

The music performed at CHYS is usually the original composer’s work, significantly more difficult than what is played in most high school orchestras. Students will be challenged, perhaps a bit intimidated, and then amazed at what they can play. The focus is on learning and on making “serious” music an exciting and fun experience.

Our Music Director, Mr. Paul Surapine conducts CHYS.
