Katy Youth Symphony

Katy's first community music organization
for 4th-12th grade children.

Katy has been recognized as one of the fastest growing communities in the nation and as a hub for music education. The Katy Youth Symphony, KYS, is a natural outgrowth of this vibrant and growing community. The Katy Youth Symphony is committed to bring our children together to learn, grow, play, and serve close to home where friends and family can support and enjoy their performances and grow in civic pride and music appreciation.
