MYO is a comprehensive program that equips students with the foundational abilities to learn, to achieve in multiple settings and to develop the capacities, skills and knowledge needed to navigate challenges toward lifelong success, thereby strengthening the communities we live in.

We are able to provide lessons and orchestra experience at a relatively low cost to all members due to the generous support of our sponsors and the community.

There are many ways to support the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra!


Most MYO Concerts and Chamber events are free and great events for families. See the full listing of concerts and events here.


We rely on many volunteers to help with concerts and events. Sign up to volunteer for MYO concerts here (link again). For other volunteer opportunities with MYO contact
