About Us

Our Mission

Founded in 2004, the mission of the Youth Philharmonic Orchestra is to achieve musical, social, and intellectual growth for young musicians of all ethnic, cultural, and economic backgrounds, through inspired instruction that complements and enhances school music programs.

Dedicated Artistic Directors, with exceptional credentials and experience, develop and nurture the music performance ability of our young musicians. Our advanced ensembles develop soloist performance skills while instilling professional disciplines as orchestra members.  Our programs support music in the schools and encourage Youth Philharmonic Orchestra members to participate in their school instrumental music program, if available.
