The Decatur Youth Symphony is enriching the lives and the education of approximately 300 youth symphony members. Additionally partnering with Decatur City Schools, DYS reaches every 2nd grade student in the Decatur City Schools system with ten free violin lessons. The Decatur Youth Symphony will enrich the lives and enhance the education of approximately 150 youngsters in our area this season.  We are partially funded by the City of Decatur but depend on private contributions for over 60% of our needs.
