The Golden Isles Youth Orchestra (GIYO), formerly called the Coastal Youth Symphony, was founded in 2005 by the Coastal Symphony of Georgia to introduce classical music to the children of Glynn County and the surrounding area. In 2014, GIYO outgrew its affiliation with the Coastal Symphony of Georgia and became a separate entity.
The program currently includes the GIYO full orchestra which rehearsals weekly for two and a half hours in addition to lessons and to daily practice in preparation for concerts in late Fall and late Spring, the Symphonette intermediate strings orchestra, the Ensemble small group advanced musicians, as well as Lessons and String-ON out-reach. GIYO is proud of the diversity in age, gender, racial and economic status that exists among the participants at all levels.
GIYO is a non-profit registered in the State of Georgia and
is a 501 c)(3) designated organization.
