Pittsburgh Youth Philharmonic Orchestras
Educating, inspiring and fostering a lifelong love of music.
Three Levels of Ensembles for all String and Band Instruments:
Overture Strings provide developing to intermediate string players the opportunity to learn more about playing their instrument while working in a string orchestra setting.
Overture Band provide developing to intermediate band players the opportunity to learn more about playing their instrument while working in a band setting.
Prelude Band allows those musicians whose skills are still maturing to gain experience on their instrument while playing in both an intermediate band and full orchestra setting.
Prelude Strings provides string musicians with the opportunity to experience a more focused ensemble environment while working in both a string and full orchestra setting.
The PYPO Philharmonic is our most advanced ensemble and enables students work on challenging repertoire which will advance their playing abilities in a full orchestra setting.
HOW TO JOIN ONE OF PYPO’S ENSEMBLES
Our staff is committed to challenging each musician, nurturing each person and exploring the humanity behind the art. At PYPO we cling to the idea that personal expression transcends music, because a PYPO education is not necessarily training just for a musical career-it is training for a creative life.
