Youth Repertory Orchestra


Cynthia Woods, Conductor

Youth Repertory Orchestra (YRO) is open by audition to upper intermediate pre-college string, woodwind, brass and percussion players. Students placed in YRO are expected to be able to play with solid intonation and good tone quality, a variety of dynamics, and are comfortable carrying their part independently while blending with the ensemble. While orchestral assignments are made by level, not age, most members of YRO are in grades 8-12.
