Have a young talented musician that wants to take their skills to the next level? The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra has announced it will launch a tuition-free, high level youth orchestra led by Maestro José-Luis Novo, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director, in September 2021.   

The Orion Youth Orchestra is waiving the $100 administrative fees for early applications received by May 31. Applications are now being accepted for talented, driven young musicians playing strings, winds, brass, percussion, harp, and keyboard. 

This opportunity allows a young musician to work under the direction of a world-renowned conductor with other young, accomplished musicians in a diverse, premier youth orchestra. In addition, members of the Orion Youth Orchestra will have access to Annapolis Symphony concerts, guest workshops and events, as well as the opportunity to perform with professional musicians.  

The fee-free Orion Youth Orchestra comes thanks to the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra and its donors.
