The students of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra (PYO) organization continue to stand out for their talent. All eight finalists, and the first place winner, of the 2018 School District of Philadelphia’s All-City Concerto Competition are current PYO members. The School District of Philadelphia’s All-City Music Program, consisting of a full symphonic orchestra, concert band, and choir, is audition based and includes the top performing student musicians within The School District of Philadelphia.
Music teachers make a tremendous impact on the lives of their students and, for the fifth year, the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and several partners search for an outstanding and inspirational teacher to honor with the PYO Ovation Award. Nominators who are current or former students and of any age, submit a 250-word statement about “the music teacher who changed my life.” The PYO Ovation Award is sponsored by Jacobs Music Company, J.W. Pepper and WRTI-90.1 FM.
