Peninsula Symphony Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles Harbor College

The PSYO-LAHC is sponsored jointly by the Peninsula Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Harbor College (offered as a Harbor College Extended Education course titled "Harbor College Youth Orchestra").

Students are challenged to master diverse styles from classical to jazz to the bold and the new. The ensemble is open to young musicians through age 18 who play an orchestral instrument.
