Kawartha Youth Orchestra

Organization Summary

As a community music and orchestra-training organization, serving elementary through post-secondary-aged youth since 2002, our mission is to blend accessibility with excellence in orchestral experiences and training. At the Kawartha Youth Orchestra, we ensure that no child is denied music participation due to financial constraints, offering a lending library for quality instruments. With professional instrumental teaching artists, public education events, and advocacy for the Arts, we foster social innovation partnerships linking music to community-building initiatives.


Our goal is to instill a lifelong love of music in our members, while nurturing qualities like self-esteem, discipline, teamwork, leadership, and performance skills, along with a strong community connection. With three ensembles catering to new musicians, intermediates, and experienced instrumentalists, we provide a range of opportunities for growth and development.


Since September 2021, we’ve launched a subsidized music program downtown, offering after-school ensemble instruction for children aged 6-18 facing socio-economic barriers. This program runs three afternoons a week, providing not only musical skill development but also a daily nutritious mini-meal, a safe space for positive social interaction and leadership development, and personalized attention from caring adults.
