About Us

About Us

The Davis Young Artists Chamber Ensemble (DYACE) is a youth orchestra based in Davis, California with members coming from the greater Sacramento area. It was founded by professional musicians, caring music teachers, and music loving parents with a passion to provide an opportunity for advanced and enthusiastic students to play music together. Our mission is to select works of genius, expose our musicians to all of their beauties, and, while inspired with warmth and imagination, elicit an appropriate emotional response from the listener.

DYACE is a non-profit organization 501(c)3 Tax ID 83-1782493.


DYACE provides an opportunity for young, motivated musicians to rehearse and perform masterpieces of the string orchestra repertoire, music that is not often played or heard in Davis or the surrounding area.

DYACE gives each member a real feeling of contributing while rehearsing, practicing and performing. Each musician is an integral part of the musical product and strives to bring inspiration to the community, as well as to young, aspiring musicians.
