INSPIRING &

SERVING OUR YOUTH

The Arkansas Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (APYO) plays a vibrant role in the region by sharing professional symphonic experiences with young musicians. Students gain a strong foundation in the underlying principles of music and the importance of musical culture in our society, going far beyond learning to play their instruments, learning expression through music, forming friendships with those that share their values, and growing to be confident, caring individuals.

EXPERTLY TRAINED COACHES

APYO conductors, teachers, and coaches come from the Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra and the University of Arkansas Department of Music, and are expertly trained and eager to motivate young musicians to progress in their musical and artistic endeavors.
