In an effort to provide advanced string players a platform on which to refine their performance skills, YPO launched the Soloists Ensemble. Conducted by Alyze Dreiling, this ensemble is for string players high school age through age 25 and aims to inspire music making at the highest possible level. It offers outstanding young performers an opportunity, not only to perform as members in the group, but also to be showcased as soloists.

The goal and objectives of this ensemble is to meet the needs of young musicians, who are ready for a pre–college or pre-professional musical experience, by giving them an opportunity to refine their technical skill and expand their repertoire in a collective group with other similarly advanced musicians and professional guest performers.

The Soloists Ensemble meets once a week for rehearsals and usually presents two or three concerts during each semester.
