The Sacramento Youth Band (SYB) is a community-based nonprofit organization providing area youth with an opportunity to play in our Symphonic Band, Jazz Big Band and Jazz Combo.


SYB provides band members with a place to expand their musical abilities, meet new friends, and travel to perform in other cities including San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara and more.


We welcome those interested in joining our ensembles to sit in for up to two rehearsals before becoming a member. Visit our Join SYB and About pages for more details.


Founded by Russ Kline of Kline Music, SYB has been educating and inspiring young musicians in the Sacramento area since 1957.

The Sacramento Youth Band had the honor of participating in

Broadway Sacramento's Summer 2023 production of The Music Man at Music Circus in

downtown Sacramento.
