Our Ensembles

Symphony Orchestra

The most advanced ensemble of the MRYO welcomes musicians ages 14-25. Symphony Orchestra offers young musicians the opportunity to acquire advanced orchestral playing skills by working on challenging and demanding repertoire. It is a unique opportunity to get a taste of great symphonic repertoire in a fun, energetic, and passionate learning environment.

Dolce Musica

The intermediate level string orchestra for ages 11 to 15. The goal of the ensemble is to give young musicians of an intermediate level the opportunity to develop basic orchestral skills in order to prepare them for eventual entry into the Symphony Orchestra. The repertoire is carefully chosen to build confidence on both a technical and musical level, while developing all aspects of string playing.

String Ensemble

The junior string ensemble for ages 5 to 12. The goal of the ensemble is to give young musicians the opportunity to discover the fun of learning to play together. The repertoire is carefully chosen and arranged so that all levels may participate; no matter what the student’s abilities, he or she will be included, challenged, and encouraged.

Wind Ensemble

An ensemble created for young musicians who are beginners to wind instruments. This ensemble will offer musicians the chance to develop their technique and musiciality while learning to play in an ensemble with other musicians. The repertoire will encourage the musicians’ development on their instruments and help prepare them with the skills required for orchestral playing.
