Every three years since 2007, PYPO has organized a European concert tour. PYPO has performed six concert tours throughout eleven countries, including Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, France, Italy, England, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and our most recent trip to Ireland. 

PYPO tours are open to all current Philharmonic and Prelude musicians as well as outside musicians by audition.

Amanda Gorman, PYPO Alum

“PYPO opened my eyes to a whole new “world” of music.  The European tours really gave me a new appreciation for our audiences.  The fact that these people from Germany, Austria, France, etc. would take the time out of their schedules to come see a group of musicians from America really meant a lot and changed my perspective on the world.  It made me realize music really did transcend language and culture.”

What's Next?

Our seventh PYPO European Tour will be announced in 2025 and take place in 2026.​ We will have fundraising opportunities available.
