Enrollment Information

If you are a young musician in grades 1-12 looking for a great orchestral experience, consider auditioning for YPCO!

YPCO has two wonderful programs for you to choose from:

The Chamber Orchestra (grades1-8) meets every Saturday from 10:00 am to 12:00. As a teaching orchestra, we focus on developing our members’ musical skills and abilities to work as a team. In the fall and winter sets we also offer an optional one hour chamber music component.

The Advanced Ensemble (grades 9-12) meets on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30. It provides high school string players an opportunity to continue to explore the chamber and orchestral repertoire. This group continues to fulfill YPCO’s mission of providing student musicians a high caliber experience, under expert leadership, in an intimate and comfortable setting. A high level of musicianship is expected.

Rehearsal Visit

YPCO is a learning orchestra and does not engage in an intense audition process. We encourage young musicians to visit a rehearsal and join with us to see if YPCO is a fit for them. If the musician thinks that YPCO is a good match, then we encourage them to register and join us.

We host these informal rehearsal visits throughout the year. For further information or to arrange for a visit, please email manager@ypco.org or click this link to fill out a rehearsal visit request form.
