Under the musical direction of Gerald Dolan, NMYO offers ensemble experience to young musicians in the area. NMYO attracts students from more than 40 North Shore, Merrimack Valley, southern New Hampshire and southern Maine communities.
NMYO offers the following ensembles:
- Symphony Orchestra, comprised primarily of high school musicians playing orchestral instruments.
- Intermezzo Orchestra, comprised primarily of middle school musicians playing orchestral instruments.
- Overture and Prelude String Ensembles, for elementary and middle school students seeking ensemble experience with violin, viola, cello and bass.
- Wind Ensemble, for advanced wind instrument players.
- Clarinet Choir, for clarinet players at all levels.
- Junior Flute Choir, Flute Choir and Select Flute Choir.
Membership in all ensembles is by audition:
We are usually able to find a place for any serious young musician. All ensembles except the flute choirs rehearse every Monday afternoon during the school year at Masconomet High School in Topsfield. The flute choirs rehearse on afternoons at the Trinity Episcopal Church, down the road from Masconomet.
