The Powers Youth Orchestra formerly the Massachusetts Youth Symphony Project was founded in to help students build skills in both musicianship and leadership — to be their very best selves onstage and offstage. Different from more competitive local orchestras, the PYO string, advanced string, and chamber ensembles are kept small so each student shines. No one gets lost in the shuffle!
Our conductors focus on building character, leadership, and teamwork in addition to the musical skills necessary for performing standard orchestral works at the highest caliber.
Each season, we explore a wide array of music from Baroque, Classical, and Romantic to Contemporary and Popular styles. Students will also learn good rehearsal etiquette and the communicative and interpersonal skills vital to becoming leaders in the classroom, the rehearsal room, and beyond. Individual attention from conductors and a challenging yet nurturing environment make the Powers Youth Orchestra a unique and unforgettable experience for young musicians.
Weekly Saturday rehearsals begin in September and continue until the final concert in May. The Powers Youth Orchestra performs twice each year — a mid-year concert in late January and a final spring concert in May. The spring concert features the 1st-place winner of the annual Martha B.
