The music selections were beautiful and quite challenging. And the kids had a great time in the process! My son and his friend loved it.
This youth symphony orchestra is amazing.
I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by NYO student member Jason Hurlbut: Nothing can be more satisfying for a young musician than a rehearsal with one NYO's top ensembles. The instructors' attention to the smallest details of whatever piece is being worked on, respect for the composers' intentions and belief in the abilities of every student creates an experience that is both challenging and rewarding, all the while maintaining a cordial, even jovial, atmosphere. Whether it be an intense chamber music session (and by intense I mean two-hours-spent-perfecting-fifteen-seconds-of-music intense) or listening to recordings of a symphony (with pizza!) and discussing as a group how our performance could improve, I am always sure to be welcomed at NYO by a community where true talent is appreciated.

Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by NYO student member 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 5 Stars - Excellent by NYO parent member Steve Rosenbaum: The New Youth Orchestra is a unique and special organization for young musicians. The quality of instruction 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!

Rated 5 Stars - Excellent by NYO parent member Aida Bohm: NYO's philosophy and its flawless execution has been a blessing to our daughter's musical advancement. We came from SDYS (San Diego Youth Symphony) and there is no comparison, as to actual musical training. At SDYS, it was more a commercial experience, where simply the reputation and longevity was a plus, but there were so many kids there that it was impossible for our kid to receive an appropriate growth and coaching. At NYO, there is always an adequate amount of challenge and with that professional and careful coaching offered. My daughter is looking forward to rehearsals and is always confident on all concert performances. Our teacher recommended us to join there, and we are very pleased and would recommend everybody else to join.
