Our eleventh season starts with rehearsals on August 14th at Belmont United Methodist Church, Nashville. This year we re-introduce the Academy Orchestra to our lineup, giving every student in the MCYO program both large ensemble and small Chamber Ensemble playing experiences.

All rehearsals are Monday evenings and times are as follows:
Concert Orchestra: 6:00 – 8:30
Academy Orchestra: 4:45 – 7:15
Chamber Ensembles: 4:45 – 5:45 or 7:30 – 8:30

Students should arrive ten to fifteen minutes before rehearsal begins. This will allow time to unpack your instruments, be seated, and prepared to tune at the very start of rehearsal. Please bring a pencil.

The MCYO experience gives our students great opportunities to grow…

  •     Meet other musicians their age with similar interests from across the Metro Nashville area
  •     Play in a variety of musical styles and in a variety of musical groups – large and small
  •     Receive professional instruction from Nashville Symphony and other studio and touring musicians in sectional rehearsals
  •     Encouraged and challenged in their musicianship by guest artists of all styles of music
  •     Led by our experienced MCYO directors in 60+ hours of playing a wide variety of music
  •     MCYO is Nashville’s “eclectic” youth orchestra experience!

    
Tuition for 2017 – 2018 is $275 for all students. MCYO Tuition is due by August 21, 2017.

Fundraising Commitment: All students will be responsible to raise $250, due May 2018. MCYO will provide several fundraising opportunities throughout the year to help towards this Fundraising Commitment.
