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 are free and great events for families. See our upcoming concerts here.


We rely on many volunteers to help with concerts and events. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact us at


It is the goal of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra to ensure that no qualified young person be prohibited from participating in the Metropolitan Youth Orchestra due to financial need. Make a donation to MYO below:
