Welcome from the Artistic Director / Conductor

Congratulations and welcome to the Toledo Youth Orchestras.  Celebrating its 65th season, the TYO is proud to continue its partnership with the Toledo Public Schools, the Toledo Art Museum, and the Toledo Symphony Orchestra.  We are also indebted to the efforts of your numerous private teachers and school music programs. 

 

The following materials will serve to outline general policy and procedures for membership in the Toledo Youth Orchestras. While we are not a professional orchestra, at all times we should be professionally minded. This includes rehearsals, performances, and all TYO events. Your performance and demeanor are a direct reflection on the many organizations that serve to support our orchestra.

Carefully review the information provided, as some policies may be different. Also, note the addition of multiple opportunities to work with Toledo Symphony Orchestra musicians, free admission to TSO performances, scholarship and concerto performance opportunities, and world premiere performances.
 
Every effort will be made to respect your time. Rehearsals will begin on time and they will end on time. In the limited amount of rehearsal, we must prepare to perform at a high level, which will require practice. I will always give you 100%, and I ask that each of you reciprocate this commitment.
 
I am honored to work with each of you. Please remain proactive with any issues as they arise, and you will quickly come to realize I will help you in any way possible. I am looking forward to a wonderful season of great music.
  
Musically yours,
 
Dr. Kenneth Thompson
Artistic Director/Conductor
Toledo Youth Orchestra
