    Sounding Together

    We premiered our first-ever digital music festival! In 2020, when COVID-19 caused our community to shelter in place, Empire State Youth Orchestra decided that music would not stop. Undeterred by the Great Pause, ESYO transitioned its entire program to the virtual world, connecting through google meet and google classroom to continue learning and making music in new ways.
