The Pittsburgh Youth Philharmonic Orchestras is currently in our 29th season. Every year, PYPO presents three major performances, community outreach concerts, summer camps, an annual Concerto Competition, and Student Conductor Competition, and regional band and string festivals. Our musicians significantly improve their individual performance as well as ensemble skills, while developing discipline and leadership that carry into their life experiences, school and community.
The students who comprise PYPO are drawn from over thirty-six school districts, numerous private schools and home schooled musicians throughout the Tri-State area. Between our six main ensembles: Philharmonic, Prelude Band, Prelude Strings, Overture Strings, Overture Band and the Black and Gold Philharmonic; PYPO serves over 500 students annually.
