The Oklahoma Youth Orchestra (OYO)
The Oklahoma Youth Orchestra (OYO), the flagship orchestra of the Oklahoma Youth Orchestras organization, is comprised of the most advanced high school musicians who perform standard repertoire, as well as music from contemporary composers. The OYO routinely performs with professional guest soloists, with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, as well as premiers new works by local composers each season. Students who are seniors have the opportunity to audition for the annual concerto competition and, if selected, perform with the OYO and win the new Dr. Lin-Lin Liu Award for Excellence in Solo Performance.
The conductor of the OYO is Artistic Director Jeffrey Grogan. The OYO rehearses Monday evenings from 6:15pm – 8:45pm at Oklahoma City University.
