It's Not Too Late to Join VYO!
ALL INSTRUMENTS WELCOME!
The Visionary Youth Orchestra is open to musicians ages 11-18.
VYO ensembles rehearse once a week at the Brooklyn Friends School from January to May. At the end of the program, you will perform and earn a free pass to the prestigious week-long Vision Festival, the most celebrated FreeJazz festival in the world, attended by over 4,000 people!
In VYO, expressing your ideas by discovering new sounds on your instrument is as important as playing notes.
VYO members learn to improvise with world-renowned masters and educators, while studying and performing works by celebrated and living legends of FreeJazz!
