NYO New Youth Orchestra is rated 4 and 5 stars by its highest level performing members

.
.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Marya Rana:  The New Youth Orchestra is an opportunity that every musician should fully embrace. The positive environment, passionate coaches, and overall intimacy of the program make it an unforgettable and rewarding experience that not only polishes the musician, but also nurtures the individual.
.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Davin Lee:  At the New Youth Orchestra the directors constantly find great opportunities for the students. The students are encouraged to get involved in multiple aspects of music, such as chamber ensembles and solo competitions, in addition to the larger ensembles, to further their growth as both musicians and people. The accomplished instructors coach with detail and care, allowing the students to learn and express the beauty of their instruments, in a way unique to NYO.
.
Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by Zack Edwards: 
NYO has given me great opportunities to grow as a musician. The small ensembles have required me to learn my part and play my very best since every person's role is essential. My tone, intonation, and rhythmic accuracy have improved as a result of these rigorous practices. Also, NYO pushes students with challenging repertoire that they have never been exposed to or have even heard of. I fell in love with some of the pieces which I practiced and performed, learning about new composers and styles of music. Lastly, the overall atmosphere is innocuous and supportive while still maintaining friendly competition.
.
Rated 4 Stars - Very Good by Austin Nguyen:
  Even though I am relatively new to the program, NYO is an experience unlike any other. NYO provides a positive environment that it is not only beneficial to my playing but also to my overall character. The dedication and passion the directors have for music are evident in their teaching and offers a brand new perspective to me as a musician.

As NYO New Youth Orchestra and Escuela de Musica are building a strong and lasting relationship with the University of Guadalajara, Mexico’s leading higher learning institution, plans are confirmed for the upcoming NYO New Youth Orchestra 2015 Mexico Summer Tour and the NYO New Youth Orchestra Festival in Mexico.

Last Summer by special invitation of the University of Guadalajara, the NYO New Youth Orchestra leaders John Miguel and I, (David Rumley as official photographer) along with Alfredo Aranda the founder of Escuela de Musica, created the first NYO New Youth Orchestra Festival in Mexico.  This event attracted over 120 of the regions most talented young musicians who participated in a week long intense learning and performing experience. Theory classes along with instrumental training was the core of the curriculum.  At the weeks end, four large ensembles including the Jazz group, beginning wind ensemble, beginning- intermediate level string ensemble and an advanced level string orchestra all performed in the final concert event.  This happened in front of parents and friends of the young performers as well as the top university officials who were all very impressed by the high level results that together the NYO New Youth Orchestra and Escuela de Musica organizations obtained in such a brief amount of time.

At NYO, our members will....



be heard at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Here at NYO, we don’t "Supersize" our groups and we don’t stuff our members in ensemble rehearsals like sardines.
 

But we do believe, the smaller sized groups throughout our program allow every instrument to be heard during practice time, therefore making it possible for our conductors and coaches to better assist each performer. 
be heard at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

The New Youth Orchestra Organization definitely knows that the "Sink or Swim" method does not work.

Students who perform at various levels who participate in our orchestra or band programs, receive the support of quality musicians who are professional teachers, to provide regular performance examples and also to offer ongoing technical instruction to our young performers. 


be challenged at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Each semester NYO members will learn different music, we don't repeat the same old repertoire every year. 

We want to keep everything fresh and interesting for students who may be learning in the same ensemble from one year to another. Additionally, as the groups continue to become more proficient at the music they are given throughout the semester, the NYO conductors will continually adjust the upcoming repertoire to match the level of each group.


be inspired at NYO San Diego youth orchestra

Playing concerts in fancy and expensive venues may provide one day of satisfaction to a young performer and his/her family.
 

But this is not a replacement for receiving weekly rehearsals that include a world class music education that's based on a solid training program and guided by the finest instructors. NYO is providing our members with a wide range of knowledge and abilities that will be beneficial for a lifetime.

NYO artistic staff and top performers going to NYO International Summer Tour/Festival 2015
.
This year once again, the University of Guadalajara has invited NYO to build upon last years momentum.  We're expected to triple or quadruple to 300-400 local festival participants and expand this event from one week from last summer to two weeks starting July 12th and ending July 26th. We're grateful to receive sponsorship from the university which includes living accommodations, food and transportation throughout this event. This offer will include the whole roster of NYO artistic staff and also NYO's advanced student members from NYO San Diego Premier Symphony who will be joining us the second half of this event.  As we build the NYO Festival in Mexico from last summer to this coming summer, we're intending that this will lead up to a full tour which will include every member of the NYO San Diego Premier Symphony as they join us next Summer for the NYO 2016 Mexico Tour.  We intend that this Summer tour/festival opportunity will become a permanent yearly program for all advanced NYO members.

NYO adds 3000+ members to its new outreach program, lead by Alfredo Aranda
.
NYO New Youth Orchestra and its new official outreach program partner Escuela de Musica, are working together to revive music in the San Diego public county schools in a big way. Together we’re happy to announce that there are now over 3000 students educated using the Escuela de Musica curriculum to date and over 40 music teachers participating in the program. This grass roots effort that was born here in San Diego is a major driving force in placing high quality music education back into the schools of our city and county. We here at NYO are elated that predictions of Escuela de Musica’s growth within the next five years may exceed 10000 students just in San Diego schools. Continuing to be the largest and most successful San Diego based outreach music program and curriculum of its type in this city’s history.

NYO adds a fun drum class to hopefully strengthen the camaraderie within the organization
.
NYO has added a new music training program that we feel will allow our members to have an opportunity to engage in social interaction. This will hopefully further strengthen camaraderie within our organization. The new NYO Drum Class that we’re introducing will be taught by David Rumley who is our percussion specialist.

This seven week hand drum course that’s based on traditional African and other world music is designed to be a very fun and less structured approach to drumming, rhythm and ensemble training. The class is open to NYO members only and no previous percussion experience is needed. Also, there are no materials or additional instrument to be purchased. Learning will be done at the class verbally and through example, but there will be no assignments that will be given since there is no practicing required throughout the week.

Conveniently, we will be scheduling each 45 minute class before and after the regular Saturday rehearsals so that a majority of our members can participate without having to make an extra trip back to the NYO facilities. There is an eight person limit to each class and there are 7 class dates for each session. If you’re interested, please complete the application for this class.  NYO Drum Class Online Application.




NYO Jazz Ensemble concert was a great success
.
NYO New Youth Orchestra faculty and NYO Jazz Program instructors Francisco Bandin and Eric Dewhirst held their first program featuring the NYO jazz ensemble.  The performance was held on Sunday, January 25th - 6pm at the NYO New Youth Orchestra Training & Performing Center 10855 Sorrento Valley Road #2, San Diego, CA 92121.

Join the experience

NYO New Youth Orchestra San Diego youth orchestra is now creating exciting new ensembles where young musicians can meet new friends and collaborate with like minded performers. It's also our goal to introduce orchestra members to a wide range of new contemporary music as well as the great standard repertoire. Our approach keeps fresh and interesting concert programs.

We all look forward to programs that contain interesting and diverse symphonic music written by major composers from all periods. These compositions will include, but will not be restricted to mainly Mozart symphony No. 40. Beethoven Symphony No. 5 etc.. We don't want to limit our young members to mainly Mozart, Beethoven or even Brahms who are composers that wrote compositions which are instantly recognized to the general public today, but we want our youth orchestra performers to experience great works like Elgar Symphony No. 2, Mahler Symphony No. 5, Martinu Symphony No. 6, Bruckner Symphony No. 3, Symphony No. 1 von Weber, Tubin Symphony No. 3, Sinfonia Walker No. 1, Schnittke Symphony No. 8 and Philip Glass Symphony No. 7.
