Youth Concert Orchestra (YCO) is the first full orchestra experience for most students. While the string players in YCO often come from Camerata (and bring several years of youth orchestra experience) this is often the first ensemble for many wind, brass and percussion students. Listening, blending, and making music within a full orchestra is a challenge met by all students in YCO. In this ensemble, principal players learn what it means to lead a section, and less-experienced players learn from their colleagues. Students perform arrangements, original masterworks, and pops favorites.
