CPYO, a division of PASCP, looks ahead with great excitement and sense of vision.

 

We believe this environment to be the foundation that will allow us:

         ~ To encourage greater participation in the arts
                    ~  To nurture each student's potential for success
                              ~  To inspire life-long audiences for classical music

Established in 1991, with the support of the Penn State University School of Music, CPYO is the area’s premiere youth music ensemble, with over 70 talented young musicians from several counties. The Penn State University School of Music continues to be a strong supporter of CPYO by providing rehearsal and concert facilities, an orchestral library, percussion instruments and concert grand pianos, as well as student mentors who graciously participate in CPYO rehearsals and concerts.


CPYO is a two-tiered organization: 


    the Full Orchestra consists of winds, percussion and more experienced string players;
    the Chamber Orchestra consists of winds and strings seeking their first orchestral experience.

Both orchestras perform three times a year and have the opportunity to collaborate with professional world-class soloists. Recent works include Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, Dvorak's "New World" Symphony, Mahler's Symphony No. 4, Copland's Appalachian Spring, and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 among many other works from the standard symphonic repertoire.

Performing Arts School of Central Pennsylvania admits students of any race, color, national origin and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, and activities generally courted or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate basis of race, color, national origin and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship program, and other school programs.

Membership in CPYO is by audition.
