Interested students should be at around NYSSMA Level 3 or higher and able to sightread music.


The Youth Ensemble meets at Stony Brook University on Saturdays from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM. There will one concert in December and one concert in May at the Staller Center for the Arts.


Fall Semester (September to December): $500
Spring Semester (January to May): $500

There are no additional fees or expenses required for the year.  Tuition also covers the cost of concerts and tickets to all events.
