Congratulations! The Office of Arts & Culture and the Seattle Arts Commission have approved a renewal of Youth Arts Program award in the amount of $12,000 to maintain the World Youth Orchestra for two years–2017-18 & 2018-19. Your project was selected from an impressive and competitive field. Engagement in quality art-making during out-of-school time for young people sparks curiosity and creativity that fosters a continuum of learning.
The World Youth Orchestra culminating performance for 2016-17 took place in Orvis Theater at the Seattle Academy of Arts & Sciences on Saturday afternoon, June 17, at 3:30pm.
WYO sessions begin each year in October and are open to the public, free of charge, for aspiring young musicians ages 12-18 years old. Please contact us if you wish to participate.
