The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra (COYO), now in its 24th season, is a full, 105-member symphony orchestra of young musicians from more than 45 communities in 11 counties across northern Ohio and western Pennsylvania. The Youth Orchestra was founded in 1986 under the direction of former Cleveland Orchestra Resident Conductor Jahja Ling to provide talented young musicians with a pre-professional orchestra training experience of the highest possible artistic standard. Since that time, more than 1,000 young musicians have benefited from the unique musical experiences that COYO offers: weekly coachings with members of The Cleveland Orchestra, rehearsals and performances in historic Severance Hall, and opportunities to work with internationally renowned guest artists and conductors, including Pierre Boulez, Peter Eötvös, Yo-Yo Ma, Kurt Masur, Gil Shaham, Michael Tilson Thomas and Cleveland Orchestra Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. As one of the best youth orchestras in the country, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra has garnered a number of prestigious accolades. Following the opening concert of the Youth Orchestra’s 2007-08 season, The Plain Dealer commented that “As the last movement [of Sibelius’s Symphony No. 2] ascended to its sunny peak, the orchestra filled every corner of Severance Hall with tonal gold.” In March 2008, The Plain Dealer stated that the Youth Orchestra’s performance of the conclusion of Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 “shook the hall in a blaze of youthful glory.”

In June 2009, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra made its first appearances (performing four concerts) in Boston, Massachusetts, and surrounding areas, marking the first COYO tour since the Youth Orchestra’s triumphal tour performance at Carnegie Hall in 2001.

Each of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra’s concerts this season is to be broadcast on later dates by WCLV 104.9 FM. The November 22 concert is scheduled to be broadcast at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 10, 2010, and 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 17, 2010.

The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra is part of The Cleveland Orchestra’s wide-ranging Community Music Initiative (CMI), which seeks to engage the community in transformational musical experiences, and to foster a love of music and a lifetime of participation in the musical arts.
