North Idaho Youth Symphony

Welcome to the North Idaho Youth Symphony (NIYS)!

Although our name has changed, the same tradition of exciting and inspiring music instruction and performance remains the same. The North Idaho Youth Symphony is committed to providing a quality orchestral experience for the youth of the Inland Empire and to increase opportunities for musical arts expression and education for its members.

2016-17 Season Finale concert is on YouTube!

We were proud to host the 2018 Honors Winds on our Finale Concert on a special presentation of The Pines of Rome by Ottorino Respighi.
