The JOMP Youth Orchestra (JYO), is a vibrant and leading youth orchestra in the Worcester area. Each year, JYO brings talented and advanced young musicians together from all over Central Massachusetts. JYO is off for the summer but see Summer String Orchestra for an exciting summer experience.
Students prepare two exciting programs a year for First Night Worcester and JOMP’s Annual Spring Gala at Mechanics Hall. Recent repertoire included works by Bartok, Beethoven, Bizet, Dvorak, Fauré, Haydn, Méhul, Mozart and Schubert. Rehearsals focus on developing musicianship and ensemble skills and refining interpretation, intonation and sound. Sectionals are scheduled within the regular rehearsal time. To schedule an audition, please call 508-856-9541.
Also see JOMP Youth Sinfonietta for preparatory orchestral experience.
