Scholarships and Grants

Each year, as funds are available, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony awards scholarships to qualifying members of the orchestra. Our young musicians use the scholarships to continue their music education during a summer music program of their choice or at the college level if entering a music curriculum in the fall, or to assist with private lessons or purchase of a musical instrument.  Over the years the orchestra has awarded more than $125,000 in scholarships, grants, and tuition assistance.

Our Mission

The mission of the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is to provide challenging experiences in orchestral and individual performance for student musicians, to broaden their technical skills and artistic expression, to instill professionalism, and to enhance enjoyment of their musical talents for themselves and for their audiences.

About Us

Founded in 1987 by Dr. John Enyart, the Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is composed of the most talented young musicians selected by annual audition from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and northern Palm Beach counties in Florida.  The orchestra performs standard and classical literature, as well as modern transcriptions of Broadway scores.


The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and obtains funding through tuition, private and corporate contributions, and performance revenues.  The conductors, students, parents and all others involved spend countless volunteer hours managing, rehearsing and supporting the activities of the symphony.
