What is the difference between the Symphony and the Concert orchestra, and how are students placed?

The MSYO’s two ensembles are arranged by student’s age and experience. The Concert orchestra is a preparatory group that works on building a musical foundation through classical pieces that are arranged for younger musicians. The Symphony Orchestra is a more advanced group that focuses on performing original classical repertoire at a professional level.

  • Concert Orchestra (grades 5-9) Intermediate Level.

  • Symphony Orchestra (grades 9-12) Advanced Level.
