President’s Message

Dear Friends,

In our 2017-18 season, more than 550 hardworking young musicians will join together among our six program divisions to perform challenging musical works and develop the skill sets required to be tomorrow’s leaders. Concert performances serve as a public celebration of their dedication and recognition of the hours of practice, rehearsals, and energy that each student puts into their craft each day.

The PYO organization's educational pathway of ensembles benefits talented youth of all ages. Participation in PYO's nationally recognized programs has a lifelong impact on students at varying levels of musical growth. Please join us for this year's concerts, whether its at The Kimmel Center, Temple Performing Arts Center, or one of our many performance venues throughout the region. We invite you to celebrate our good citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity in helping us fulfill our important community mission. We greatly look forward to sharing our students' many successes with you in the coming year.

With all best regards and sincerest appreciation,


Louis Scaglione,
President & Music Director
