Our Orchestral Program


SMYOC has a 2-tier orchestral program. The upper tier, known as the Youth Orchestra, has string, woodwind, brass and percussion sections - a full symphonic orchestra. The Youth Orchestra is suited to experienced students who play at Level 4 or better; applicants up to age 20 may be accepted. The lower tier, known as the Preparatory Strings Orchestra welcomes less experienced students who play violin, viola, cello or double bass at Level 2 or above.

Both orchestras rehearse weekly and perform 2 to 3 times per semester. The Youth Orchestra rehearses on Monday evenings and the Prep Strings Orchestra rehearses on Tuesday evenings - CLICK HERE to apply for an audition.
