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.
Who: School-aged youth who'll practice and attend regularly
What: Classes are based on students' areas of interest, as they rehearse for the concert next March
When: Auditions and mandatory parent/student orientation in September — then Monday evening rehearsals October till March except holidays
How: Classes vary based on student's level, to provide most appropriate instruction
Students should be prepared to play their favorite piece and a scale of their choosing.
