    Reno Philharmonic Youth Orchestras

    The Reno Philharmonic Youth Orchestras, also known as RPYO, is our community youth orchestra. It is a great opportunity for young musicians to advance their musical skills and continue their passion for music. 

    The Reno Philharmonic Youth Orchestras serve over 230 talented young musicians selected by open regional auditions. Many RPYO members regularly travel 100 miles or more to attend weekly rehearsals and training. All three orchestras perform at the annual Fall and Spring Concerts at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, and our beginning orchestra joins in for the spring concert. Members benefit from full orchestral rehearsals, sectional coaching from professional musicians, and high-level guest conductors. The Reno Philharmonic Association also sponsors tuition scholarships, a concerto competition with cash prizes for winners in each of five divisions, senior scholarships, and a summer camp scholarship.

    Auditions for the following school year generally occur in June. Mid-year auditions generally occur in December.  There are possibly positions that are open and need to be filled. If your student is interested, complete and submit the Youth Orchestra Interest Form.
