McLean Orchestra provides professional-level orchestral concerts in an easily accessible location and at reasonable cost to area residents. A small paid staff and a dedicated board of skilled volunteers support the orchestra’s effort to foster the appreciation and enjoyment of live classical music in a growing and enthusiastic audience.
Today’s orchestra is composed of over eighty talented professional musicians who deliver outstanding performances. The orchestra aspires to continued organizational growth and artistic excellence. Collaboration with other arts organizations, free community concerts designed to acquaint new audiences with classical music, and educational outreach efforts aimed at children and teens further extend our impact in the community.
The McLean Youth Orchestra (MYO) was founded in 1983 to provide the finest possible musical education to students who represent the future of classical music in the community. Designed for musically advanced middle and high school students; MYO offers the the opportunity to play in an accomplished orchestra while further developing their musical skills.
