Coordinator’s Message

Dear Fellow Alumni,

Welcome to the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra Alumni Network!

All of us who have taken part in the offerings of the PYO know the impact that this organization has had on our lives --and the lives of so many over the last 75 years.  The PYO Alumni Network hopes to bring those memories back to life and reconnect Alumni with one another.  Through such a fellowship, we can continue to spread the word of the amazing youth who participate across the various program divisions: the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, Philadelphia Young Artist Orchestra, BRAVO Brass, PRYSM, and Tune Up Philly.

We hope to have several Alumni Network events throughout the coming year, inclusive of a large turn-out at our 75thseason's Gala.  If you have not had the chance to hear the ensembles recently, I would encourage you to attend any-if not all-of their performances.  I assure you that you will be impressed with all of the organization’s divisions and the legacy that our current members are building for tomorrow.

I would also ask you to update your contact information, so that we can keep you up to date with all of the latest news and events within the Alumni Network.  We are branching into social media so don't forget to include your Twitter and Facebook information, and be sure to follow us on both!

Thank you for taking the time to reconnect with the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra Alumni Network.  We all look forward to seeing you again.

Welcome Home!

Michael Brookshire,
PYO Alumni Network Coordinator
