AMP Youth Orchestras

About AMP Youth Orchestras:

The AMP Youth Orchestras are the most advanced instrumental ensembles at AMP and are designed for young musicians in middle and high school who are already experienced performers.

Performing both standard symphonic music and musical genres representing the culture of the communities we serve, it is our goal for the AMP Youth Orchestras to become one of the top youth training orchestra programs in the country.

The AMP Youth Orchestras consist of two ensembles: the Junior Youth Orchestra and the Senior Youth Orchestra.

Both ensembles include: violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, trumpet, trombone, french horn, tuba, orchestral percussion.

Junior Youth Orchestra level is intermediate/advanced, performing music from Level 2 – Level 4.

Senior Youth Orchestra level is advanced, performing full symphonic works and music from Level 4 – Level 6.
