Excellence in music. Excellence in life. 

Welcome to the Glendale Youth Orchestra

Our mission is to contribute to a world where exceptional young musicians are empowered to express themselves through music:

  • To explore, appreciate, and develop talent and passion for music

  • To acquire skills, discipline, and enhanced creativity along the journey of musical education

  • To transform through music, as well as through life, into better citizens of our communities and the world at large.

We stand for excellence, growth, passion, and music for our young generations — believing that as in art, so in life.
