About Greater Connecticut Youth Orchestras
Greater Connecticut Youth Orchestras (GCTYO) brings young musicians together to achieve the highest standard of music performance in a welcoming, inclusive, and safe environment. Our holistic approach to education fosters growth, learning, confidence, and both social and emotional awareness, which prepares students for a full and balanced life. The study and performance of great music in an ensemble setting can be a transformative experience for young musicians, and the skills they learn as part of a GCTYO ensemble—teamwork, perseverance and responsibility—carry over into all areas of their lives. GCTYO instructors are both professional musicians and music educators who are tuned in to educational best practices and child development. They bring out the best in each student by challenging them to work hard as individuals and members of a group. Musicians feel engaged by the process and supported by their conductors and peers. The result is a positive, exciting learning experience with clear, measurable musical and social progress through the years. GCTYO strives for diversity and inclusivity in an environment that is both fun and musically challenging. Through rehearsals and ...formal performances, young musicians gain valuable experience and an important sense of achievement and self-confidence while fostering lifelong friendships and a love of music. Rehearsals are held in Fairfield and at least three performances each season are given at The Klein in Bridgeport. Additional concerts may be held at other venues. GCTYO maintains a robust financial assistance program so that all students who want to can participate. GCTYO Principal Orchestra musicians are able to play full-length concert programs of classical music. Most students do not have access to this level of music in their school orchestras or even other youth orchestras. GCTYO is ahead of the curve in challenging its advanced students to perform difficult music usually reserved for college or professional orchestras. Musicians take great pride in their performances and feel good about bringing music to the community. Watch and listen to a concert here.
