What our members say about the FYO

“FYO has been part of my life for over a decade, and I truly appreciate every moment that I have spent here. Now that I’m graduating, I will dearly miss my Monday rehearsals and I hope to be lucky enough to find another orchestra that can come close to repeating my experiences here. One thing is for certain: my FYO bumper strip will forever grace the back of my car.”
Ariana Baurley,
Principal Orchestra

“FYO has widened my interest in music, and has given me wonderful opportunities to perform. I love FYO!”
