The Kawartha Youth Orchestra

Under the leadership of Music Director and Conductor Michael Newnham, the Senior Kawartha Youth Orchestra (KYO) offers young musicians between the ages of 12 and 24 the opportunity to work under the guidance of professional instrumental coaches and to have the experience of playing in an orchestra with their peers.

The Junior Kawartha Youth Orchestra (JKYO) is available to children 8+, with no audition required.  Young musicians will learn to play orchestral music in a supportive and nurturing environment, under the leadership of Conductor Marilyn Chalk.  All students must be able to read music, and have some experience on their instrument.
