Greater Princeton Youth Orchestra

About Us

GPYO LOGOOur Mission

The Mission of the GREATER PRINCETON YOUTH ORCHESTRA is to provide exciting and unique educational opportunities for many of our community’s young musicians. Through their involvement with the orchestra, gifted young musicians from across central New Jersey and Pennsylvania hone their skills as performers in a large orchestral group, as well as in chamber and quartet ensembles. They learn to work with others in pursuing common goals, and enrich all of our lives through public performances of classical music.
