The Delaware County Youth Orchestra, celebrating its 42nd season in 2013-2014, is a highly selective, full-size symphony orchestra of talented young musicians through senior year of high school. The orchestra rehearses in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania at Proclamation Presbyterian Church, 278 Bryn Mawr Avenue. Its mission is to provide young people of exceptional ability with the opportunity to learn and perform major works from the standard symphonic repertoire, and to teach them the skills and discipline of orchestral performance.
DCYO presents three concerts a year in locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. It has also participated in the Festival of Youth Orchestras in the U.S. and Canada. In recent years music director Brad Smith has included works of contemporary composers in the orchestra’s repertoire, most notably award-winning composer Jennifer Higdon’s tone poem blue cathedral, which DCYO performed in its May 2009 concerts. Earlier that spring DCYO had the privilege of rehearsing the piece with the composer, whose insights proved to be invaluable in terms of interpretation and perspective.
