Each season, the Dearborn Symphony invites the DYS Symphony Orchestra to participate in their May concert.

Under the direction of Maestro Kypros Markou, this program celebrates the future of classical music by featuring outstanding youth musicians.

DYS musicians perform “side by side” with a professional counterpart during rehearsals and the concert for one selection of the program.

The music selection is a piece that has been previously learned in weekly DYS rehearsals.


In order to participate, musicians must attend additional rehearsals during the week of the performance. All are held at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn.


The Side by Side Concert is only available to members of the DYS Symphony Orchestra.

In order to participate, musicians must attend a rehearsal the week prior to the concert.
