- 3 Chamber Music concerts (Hausmusiks), featuring guest artists and local musicians
- 2 Youth Educational Symphony (YES!) Concerts, specifically geared toward introducing the joys of music to area 5th and 6th graders
In addition to our performances, the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra has a long tradition of community and educational outreach. Our success in this area is due to a strong network of dedicated staff, board volunteers and talented musicians.
