In the Santa Barbara Symphony Youth Ensembles, students learn how to play in an ensemble while they strive to improve their individual playing skills.
The Philharmonia Orchestra engages string, wind, brass, and percussion students in performing as a full orchestra. To provide targeted training and experience with other repertoire, Philharmonia students also rehearse as a chamber strings group and a symphonic wind band. Students perform in both the full orchestra and their chamber group. Students in the Philharmonia Orchestra have two (2) or more years of study on a string, wind, brass, or percussion instrument.
