Who are we?

We are a group of kids from South Florida, ranging in ages from 6 - teen years. We meet weekly for rehearsals and perform special concerts throughout the year. We perform classical music, melodies from musicals, Christmas carols, and traditional American songs.

Schedule of Rehearsals

Just to let you know that we will begin YASO rehearsals August 14.  If each of you practices on your Christmas music this summer, we should be able to have enough time to learn all this music well before the Extravaganza.
Have a wonderful rest of the summer.
Love you all.

From the proceeds of tickets sold at Christmas concerts and love offerings over the past 4 years, we are able to purchase music, equipment, and supplies for the orchestra.  This spring (2014) we have begun giving scholarships to Young Artists String Orchestra (YASO) students to be used for music camps, lessons, and additional musical ventures. 

Scholarships totaling $2000 were given out at the Spring Spectacular concert (May 2014).  We plan to continue to give scholarships as we are able financially from the monetary gifts of supporters, and the sale of Christmas concert tickets.
