Baldwin Wallace Youth Orchestra Program

Our orchestras and ensembles provide talented young musicians with opportunities to expand and strengthen their musical skills and knowledge. The programs are designed to be supplemental to area school programs, and it is expected that all orchestra members play in their own school ensembles, where they exist.  In addition,  members are encouraged to participate in as many school musical activities as possible to increase their playing experience.  New members are accepted each September and January. 

*An audition is required for membership in any ensemble.
