Inspiring Harmony for Tomorrow

At a time when the arts have been tremendously impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Northern Colorado Youth Orchestra was brought into existence thanks to the efforts of dedicated parents, students, and teachers looking toward a brighter future for musicians of all ages and ability levels in the Larimer County region and beyond.

The purpose of this organization is to give students an opportunity to create music in-person in a safe environment in order to support the efforts of Orchestra Teachers at the Middle and High School levels in the Poudre, St. Vrain, Thompson, and Weld County Districts, Local Private Teachers, and Homeschool families throughout the region.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn from a variety of conductors, which will be contracted from local school districts, professional organizations, and academic institutions. Many students learn from only one to two music teachers between middle school and high school. One of our primary objectives is to showcase the amazing music educators and professional conductors that Northern Colorado is honored to have with our three ensembles.

As time progresses and circumstances change, our vision of Inspiring Harmony for Tomorrow, will be at the forefront of our work with our students in order to impart critical life skills, relentless perseverance, and empathy for all walks of life. Through the power of music education, we can leave the world a little better than we found it.
