Professional Orchestral Preparation for Young Musicians




Who we are

and what we do.

With a focus on children and youth, RDYO fosters the development, knowledge, appreciation, and pursuit of excellence in the field of ensemble/orchestral music. More broadly, RDYO strives to benefit young people by establishing the basis for a positive lifelong relationship with music, offering enjoyable and enriching experiences through socialization and accomplishment, and extending the reach of musical education equitably. 

RDYO also seeks to benefit the community at large, providing entertainment value and exposure to high-quality musical experiences, encouraging involvement in and support of ensemble music-making, and bolstering local communities through representation.
