About the Armstrong Youth Orchestra
The Armstrong Youth Orchestra Program was founded in 2004, serving Savannah, Georgia and surrounding counties. The Program is an educational outreach program serving students from primary grades through college level, utilizing an artistically graduated system that matches students of various musical abilities with other students of similar levels of accomplishment.
The goal of the Armstrong Youth Orchestra Program is to offer serious music students the opportunity to play in an accomplished orchestra while developing their musical skills. We strive to teach them constructive study, rehearsal, and performance habits in a joyful, rewarding, and cooperative atmosphere.
All of our students gain the valuable experience of working with Savannah’s best professional orchestra musicians and teachers. Professional orchestra string and wind instructors provide several weeks of sectional rehearsals where each instrumental group receives specialized instruction.
Featuring 5 student ensembles:
- Debut Strings Ensemble (DSE)
- Serenade Strings Ensemble (SSE)
- Lyric Strings Ensemble (LSE)
- Repertory Youth Orchestra (RYO)
