Under the direction of Mark Miller, the Cape Youth Orchestra is a full symphonic orchestra designed for our most advanced and dedicated youth musicians. Engaging weekly rehearsals challenge musicians to strive for excellence. Students will perform classical and contemporary symphonic repertoire, strengthening musicianship, developing friendships, and creating memories for a lifetime. 

Due to the pandemic, all rehearsals will be remote for the fall semester and until it is safe to meet in person again. The first virtual rehearsal begins on Sept. 12th, with subsequent virtual rehearsals every Saturday from 11 AM - 1:30 PM. No rehearsals during school vacations or holiday weekends.
