The heart of PYPO
Begin. Grow. Love.
Now in its 30th season, PYPO's five main ensembles are the heart of the organization. Young musicians in the first through twelfth grades play, learn, and perform with our team of music educators who are passionate about creating a nurturing and exciting environment in which young minds — and music — can thrive.
Students come from over 36 school districts, numerous private schools, and home-schooled students throughout the tri-state area. We are proud to have over 500 students playing with us each season.
Philharmonic is our most advanced ensemble. It enables musicians to work on challenging, professional level repertoire which will advance their playing abilities in a full orchestra setting.
Black & Gold Pops
The Black and Gold Pops is PYPO's newest ensemble, comprised of eighty members of the community, alumni, and current PYPO students. Black and Gold puts on fun, engaging community concerts with your favorite pops tunes.
