The Abilene Youth Orchestra (AYO) is a full symphony youth orchestra that provides a unique
opportunity for the most serious and talented young musicians in the Big Country to perform
advanced repertoire that will challenge and inspire.
The primary purpose of the AYO is to provide its members with exemplary symphonic training and performance opportunities and to inspire a culture of musical excellence. In doing so, the organization promotes advanced musical education and offers quality music to the community. AYO recognizes the excellent musical education and private instruction that students in the Big Country receive and seeks to provide the chance for students to perform together in a full symphonic setting.
The AYO exists for the benefit of young musicians, responds to their needs, and keeps their interest in musical education paramount to all other considerations. The organization does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or economic status.
