Our Programs

Featuring musicians from all four instrument families, the orchestra is CYO’s premier group. The youth orchestra plays two concerts per semester, performing repertoire for full orchestra. Rehearsals are from 6:30-8:30pm on Tuesdays at Bailey Middle School.

CYO’s entry-level string orchestra is the perfect fit for students just beginning their music education journey. Students learning a string instrument are invited to play along with their peers having 1-3 years experience. Rehearsals are from 6:30-7:30pm on Tuesdays at Bailey Middle School.

The CYO Brass Ensemble is our newest ensemble program and is an exclusive opportunity connecting elite instruction with more experienced brass youth musicians in the local area. The ensemble is directed by Andrew Fierova, a member of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and horn professor at Davidson College. Placement in the ensemble will be evaluated and determined by an audition via video submission. Rehearsals are on Mondays from 5:30-7pm at Bailey Middle School.
