The mission of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra (PYO) is to provide the opportunity for gifted and talented students to be involved in extraordinary music education through its orchestral training and performance program. PYO recruits students from the greater Philadelphia region including New Jersey and Delaware, primarily of middle school through college age and of all ethnic and demographic backgrounds. Through its educational and music activities, including international concert tours, it promotes and encourages the development of the life-lessons needed to become a successful member of society by building a strong sense of character, discipline, commitment and maturity in its students. In addition, PYO fosters the appreciation of the musical arts and education in the greater Philadelphia community and throughout the world.
