Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras
" The Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras (GNOYO) has been recognized both locally and nationally for its commitment to music education. Now in its twenty-first season, GNOYO provides young musicians the opportunity to participate in a high-quality full orchestra program. Participants significantly improve individual performance and ensemble skills, while developing professional attitudes and discipline, which empower them to take initiative in their schools and community and to pursue individual and team excellence in all life endeavors.
