The Portland Youth Philharmonic is America's first youth orchestra - its genesis rooted deep in the high desert country of Burns, Oregon. Its mission is to inspire and educate young musicians 7 to 22 years of age and be a cultural asset to the community. Watch part of a rehearsal and hear from members of the orchestra. The PYP presents its first concert of the new season November 14, 2009.
Visit a Portland Youth Philharmonic rehearsal and meet some of the musicians.
