Pittsburgh Youth Philharmonic Orchestra

Educating, inspiring and fostering a lifelong love of music.

PYPO Ensembles

Young musicians from all over the Tri-State area make up PYPO’s four ensembles:

Overture Strings

Overture Strings provides developing to intermediate string players the opportunity to learn more about playing their instrument while working in a string orchestra setting.

Prelude Strings

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.

Prelude Band

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.

Philharmonic Orchestra

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.

Now accepting auditions for the 2017-2018 season!

Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced Ensembles

PYPO has ensembles to meet and challenge students at every level.

Building leadership skills

PYPO students return each week to their schools being leaders, mentors and guides for other budding musicians.

Cultivating Creativity

A PYPO education is not necessarily training just for a musical career–it is training for a creative life.

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.
