Acadiana Symphony Youth Orchestra
The Acadiana Symphony Youth Orchestra (ASYO) is a music-education program whose mission is to nurture the musical abilities of our community’s talented youth, and inspire their creativity by providing high-quality professional instruction, along with varied performance opportunities in diverse settings and opportunities to perform alongside our immensely talented, professional orchestra musicians. In addition to our Youth Orchestra, we have our Preparatory Orchestra whose goal is to provide younger musicians with orchestral experience, so that they may seamlessly transition into larger ensembles. Currently, both groups are made up of 45 young string musicians, ages 8 to 18, who study violin, viola, cello, and double bass. They explore various styles of music from contemporary film scores to rock, classical, rock, country, jazz, and many others. ASO looks forward to continuing to build the Youth Orchestra’s additional instrument sections with the endlessly talented youth we find here in Acadiana.
