    Read for yourself, our members will tell you

San Diego Youth Orchestra's parent and student members say it all
Members who are serious about their pursuit of music excellence, are very satisfied with NYO's commitment to provide them with the finest performing and educational experience. 

NYO San Diego Youth Orchestra's parent members and advanced ensemble student members say it all. They're all eager to tell the world how great it is to be a part of the New Youth Orchestra.

"The New Youth Orchestra is a unique and special organizati
on for young musicians. The quality is excellent and it is easy to see that every one of the principal staff, as well as each specialist, cares deeply for the the kids and their development as world-class players. The rehearsals are intensive and enjoyable learning experiences for each of the orchestra members. Finally, the sound of each of the orchestras (divided by levels), as evidenced at their semi annual concerts, is beyond what you would ever expect from ensembles composed of such young musicians."

"My daughter loves to play with this organization and I am so happy we are members!"

   NYO New Youth Orchestra Program

San Diego Youth Orchestra's NYO New Youth Orchestra Program is a multi-tiered program. Dividing all of the NYO ensembles and grouping them each under a title according to their level.

The following is a brief description of each category.

Bello level
for Exceptional Performers 

The amazing and beautiful (Bello) sounds that are produced by the ensembles in this level during each performance truly earn this program its title. In this top program, members are held to the highest standards musically and technically.  

San Diego Premier Symphony
San Diego Select Wind Ensemble
NYO Chamber Program

Ottimo level
for Advanced Performers

We set the bar to excellent (Ottimo), as members are required to perform at a very high level both individually and as a group. They will refine and master advanced musical and technical skills as they are introduced to repertoire that has been selected to challenge and inspire. 

Elite Symphony  
Elite Winds

Crescente level
for High-Intermediate Performers

Growing (Crescente) rapidly as young musicians with great habits and high expectations, here members greatly increase their knowledge and understanding of ensemble performance. This level is a critical bridge for those who want to catapult into the higher ensembles.

NYO Junior Elite Symphony
NYO Concert Band

Inizio level
for Intermediate Performers  

This is a very important beginning (Inizio) point for serious young musicians. We accept motivated students who have some experience performing on their instruments and train them to fully understand the most basic concepts of orchestral performance.
