Overview Douglas County Youth Orchestra is an organization designed to provide opportunities for students to be involved in music outside of the school setting. We believe that music is an essential part of every student's education, and we are committed to providing the highest quality orchestral experiences possible to our students. We rehearse under the direction of our seasoned, professional conductor on Saturday mornings from 10:00AM to 12:00PM and perform concerts at the end of each semester (one in the Fall and one in the Spring).
Mission Statement We believe that music is an essential part of every student's education, and we are committed to providing the highest quality orchestral experiences possible to our students.
Description DCYO expands instrumental music education through instruction and performance for young musicians in the Douglas County area. DCYO is a Colorado 501 (C)(3) non-profit, non-discriminatory organization that brings together Douglas County youth to participate in an affordable, educational program. The DCYO was started in 2005 by a group of music teachers seeking to provide orchestral ensembles in order to foster students' musical understanding, social growth, and self-esteem at a reasonable cost. We are not affiliated with the Douglas County School District.
F.A.Q What is an open rehearsal? Open rehearsals occur twice at the beginning of each season. Rather than being a formal audition, open rehearsals are a chance for anyone to bring his/her instrument, to play along and determine if we are a good fit.
How much does it cost? DCYO is proud to offer reasonable tuition. We charge $150 for the season in addition to a $25 music fee for a total of $175 per season.
When Is Payment Due? Payment is due during open rehearsals (the first two rehearsals of the season).
When are Rehearsals/Performances, etc.? Open rehearsals for Fall 2016 are Saturday, August 27 from 10 AM to 12:00 Noon, and again on Saturday, September 10 from 10 AM to 12:00 Noon. Everyone and all instruments are welcome!
