About GWYOA‎ > ‎


History of GWYOA

The Association was founded in 1953 with the formation of the Junior String Orchestra. The Youth Symphony followed in 1955. Nearly thirty years later the ‘trio’ was completed with the addition of the Elementary Strings in 1983. 

Today, the GWYOA continues to look forward, nurturing the talents of young musicians, engaging the minds of young people, and involving their families and communities through performances and community events. 

All three of the orchestras of GWYOA perform Winter and Spring Concerts each year.
