The Oklahoma Youth Orchestra (OYO)
The Oklahoma Youth Orchestra (OYO), the flagship orchestra of Oklahoma Youth Orchestras, is comprised of the most advanced high school musicians who perform standard repertoire, as well as music from contemporary composers. The OYO routinely performs a Side-by-Side concert 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.
The conductor of the OYO for the 2015-2016 season is Dr. Eric Garcia. The OYO rehearses Monday evenings from 6:15pm – 8:45pm at Oklahoma City University.
