An Amarillo Symphony string quintet visits more than 40 elementary schools annually to give second and third grade students an introduction to the different string instruments. The Amarillo Youth Orchestra is a performance-based program for young instrumentalists from around the Texas Panhandle. The four orchestras offer a unique musical experience to young musicians ages 10 to 18 of different skill levels.
