Applications are open for the 2022-2023 season! The FWYO program offers two full orchestras, a new wind ensemble, and two string orchestras! All positions in all ensembles are open to be filled by audition each season.
We are excited that our premier ensemble, The Youth Orchestra, will once again perform a Side-By-Side concert with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra next season! The Youth Orchestra won second place in The American Prize Youth Orchestra Division in 2021.
The Junior String Orchestra offers an introductory orchestral experience for young string players who will develop their ensemble skills and individual technique while participating in this outstanding group!
The new FWYO Wind Ensemble enjoyed a fantastic inaugural season during which the ensemble premiered a new fanfare commissioned by FWYO and performed classics by Holst, Bernstein, Ticheli, and C.E. Duble. To avoid conflicts with marching band commitments, Wind Ensemble rehearsals will begin in November 2022.
In addition to these groups, the Philharmonic Orchestra and String Orchestra offer intermediate ensemble experiences that will further develop the members' ensemble skills through performances of standard and educational orchestral repertoire.
