Our Mission and History
… is to nurture, develop and advance talented young musicians in quality orchestral and choral programs.
We welcome instrumentalists and singers from public/private schools (elementary, middle and high), homeschool and college from St. Mary's, Calvert and Charles counties. You'll perform a wide range of classical and modern repertoire. Our very best musicians are invited to join the Ambassador Program, where they are challenged to perform at the highest level.
SMYOC is a community of students, volunteers, parents, artists, educators, administrators, and board members, with a shared vision that we provide students with an integrated program of musical education that expands the musical opportunities available in our area and enhances:
The personal growth and sense of community for each student.
Every student’s access to musical and educational opportunities beyond SMYOC.
