United by their love of music, over 350 elementary through high school students from numerous counties throughout southeast Michigan come together each Thursday to discover and nurture their passions for music.

Through our four-tiered orchestra program, we teach, guide, and foster musical growth in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.

We laugh, we play - literally!

Virtual auditions will be held mid-April through May. Online scheduling for NEW students begins April 8 at


Supporters play an essential part in the OYO community. OYO charges a modest tuition that covers approximately 60% of its operating expenses. We rely on sponsors and donors to further support our prestigious orchestra program and enable OYO to offer essential opportunities.

We invite you to join supporters, past and present, that have helped OYO become the premier education program it is today!
