2020 HYSO Tour Information

Hochstein’s Youth Symphony Orchestra is planning a concert tour of Germany and the Czech Republic during spring break of 2020! We will perform three concerts in a variety of venues in Berlin, Leipzig, and Prague.

HYSO goes on tour every other season, with recent tours taking us to Austria, France, Ireland, Portugal, and Spain. We don’t require our students to attend the tour, but we highly recommend this wonderful musical and cultural opportunity.

Options for individual fundraising are available. Students are not required to participate on a trip to be a member of HYSO.

For more information, please contact HYSO’s Orchestra Manager, Mrs. Ruth Gates at ruth.gates@hochstein.org.
