“ESYO is great and one of the most amazing opportunities I’ve ever had.”
Colleen Bernsteiin, ESYO’12
Welcome to Empire State Youth Orchestras! We look forward to working with you during the great season ahead!
As a member of an ESYO ensemble, you will be in the company of other musicians who are passionate about music. You’ll work with professional conductors and coaches and really learn a lot about your music. You will have opportunities to perform and share your talents with the public. You will have an experience like no other – the ESYO Experience!
To make the most of your time in ESYO, please be sure to read the complete handbook before you complete your registration as a member so that you are familiar with ESYO’s policies. The handbook contains important information about your responsibilities as an ESYO musician as well as ESYO’s policies and procedures.
Finally, please be sure to compare the concert and rehearsal schedule for your ensemble against your family and school calendars. Please let us know of any conflicts right away.
Here’s to a wonderful season of music-making and learning!
