ABOUT THE APYO

 

The Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) team believes in making classical music fun and educational for local young people. We do that by teaching those who are keen to learn and by making it accessible for others who may be even just a little curious.


The APYO is a full Arkansas youth orchestra with music instruction and performances for its players. APYO students develop strong musical foundations and discipline. 'Play' is a big idea. Our players learn to express themselves through music. They grow into confident individuals, developing deep friendships in the process.
