The Youth Orchestra of Bucks County provides students in grades 4 through 12 with advanced musical training to enhance and supplement their school programs.
Based on level of mastery, students are placed in one or more of our eight core ensembles that include string-only groups, concert bands, and full orchestras. In addition to our weekly Sunday rehearsals during the school year, YOBC offers students opportunities for peer mentoring, chamber ensembles, advanced performing opportunities, and professionally run master classes for all instrumental groups. For our older students, we also offer international musical performance tours.
We encourage you to explore our website to discover all of the possibilities.
