Oklahoma Youth Philharmonic (OYP)
The Oklahoma Youth Philharmonic (OYP), is a fundamental full orchestra ensemble consisting of mostly high school students in string, wind, and percussion sections. Repertoire includes many standard masterworks expertly arranged for educational ensembles, as well as many original compositions, contemporary works, and popular music straight from the movies. In 2018 the OYP was invited to perform as an Honor Ensemble at the Oklahoma Music Educators Association annual in-service. The OYP has also participated in an exchange program with the Youth Symphonies of Kansas City.
The OYP is led by Dr. Charlene Dell, and rehearses Monday evenings from 5:30pm – 7:30pm at Oklahoma City University.
