Some information about our PYO
The Pocono Youth Orchestra was founded in 1987 by parents of young
musicians, with the vision that their children would play together in a
musical ensemble. That dream became a reality and continues today.
The Pocono Youth Orchestra is a non-profit organization providing a
valuable educational and cultural outlet for young musicians in our
PUBLIC SERVICE & OUTREACH
The orchestras perform twice a year at the Cecilia S. Cohen Recital
Hall at East Stroudsburg University. Smaller ensembles perform other
concerts throughout the year. These have included performances for Arts
on the Mountain, Fine Arts Discovery Series,the Pennsylvania Federation
of Music Clubs State Convention, and area schools and nursing homes.
Our young musicians practice throughout the year and perform twice a
year in two major concerts. In addition, PYO sponsors and encourages
youth trips to hear professional symphony orchestras.
