What is TSYE?

​We are Toledo Symphony Youth Ensemble, a high school chamber ensemble made of Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestra members. It was founded in Toledo, Ohio, in the Summer of 2017, by a group of friends as TSYQ (Toledo Symphony Youth Quartet).


TSYE is run by students, under the mentorship of Toledo Symphony and parent volunteers. We make decision on our members, repertoire, coaches, and venues. We lead rehearsals, plan performances, manage our social media, budget our expenses (we bought music as well as ice cream), and more!


We are committed to reaching out to the youths and adults in the Toledo area in non-traditional ways. We aim to explore and excel in various types of music, and communicate with diverse audiences. Expect to find us performing and volunteering in the parks, at the malls, and other unexpected places as well as in the concert halls!

Volunteer with Us!

We regularly perform and volunteer at various venues in Toledo area such as nursing homes and TSO pre-concert events. Want to volunteer with us? Please email Loa Cho, our cellist, at tsyensemble@gmail.com. We will contact you about the next available event.

"For society to attempt to solve its desperate problems ​without

the full participation of even very young people is imbecile."
