TCSYO is a true youth orchestra, not a college or post-college age group. It includes students ranging in age from 7 to 18, from public, private and home schools. The diversity of students is a strong reflection of the contemporary area we live in. The young musicians all have in common a love for music and a willingness to spend their Monday or Tuesday evenings rehearsing and playing together. These students make important friendships and discover a passion for music that continues whether or not they pursue an instrumental career. The focus of TCSYO is education – fundamentals and skill building. Rehearsals emphasize teamwork. There is a positive environment – parents are welcome to sit in during rehearsals. Rehearsals begin in September at Lanier Middle School in Fairfax, VA. Auditions are held at Lanier MS annually in early June. Auditions are required for membership into the orchestras.
