The SMYOC Ambassador Program is an opportunity offered to our most advanced, skilled, and dedicated singers and instrumentalists.

Members of the Ambassador Program are regular participants and members of the Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra and Choir but are also actively performing throughout the tri-county area and beyond within small chamber ensembles or as soloists. Guided by SMYOC conductors, sometimes with additional coaching from other professionals and teachers in our community, the Ambassador Program musicians give polished performances in festival venues, seasonal community events, SMYOC concerts, and other public and private ceremonies.

The members also serve as ambassadors for SMYOC. Selected to represent the best of SMYOC, their demonstrated abilities, professional demeanor and commitment to excellence are indicative of the high standards of the organization. In addition, they act as role models for their peers and actively represent SMYOC to prospective members.

The musical experiences and pre-professional opportunities offered to our Ambassador Program ensembles prepare these young musicians for a future in music, either within performance and musical education studies programs at colleges and/or conservatories, or as extracurricular activities pursued at the highest community levels.

Please contact us if you wish to hire our Ambassadors for your special event.
