As the area's only regional children's arts organization, FYO is highly regarded for its commitment to the finest quality music education, widespread community engagement, and sensitivity to the musical, social and emotional needs of children.

Currently, there are over 400 students from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, with some traveling over 100 miles round trip to attend rehearsals at the University School of Nova Southeastern University. They range in age from 5-18, and participate in seven orchestra divisions, learning under the expert guidance of a 23-member faculty consisting of South Florida's most respected music professionals.

The musicians represent nationalities that span the globe, with a rich diversity of ethnic background, religion and socioeconomic circumstance.
