The mission of the Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) is to provide young musicians with exceptional ensemble training and opportunities for personal growth through musical performance and community service. Led by Music Director Gerald J. Dolan Jr., with an accomplished team of music professionals, NMYO creates community connections and collaborations for its young players. NMYO’s musicians come from over 40 towns and participate in one of eight ensembles offered by the program. The regular rehearsal and concert schedule is supplemented with master classes, enrichment days, chamber music coaching, community service outreach concerts to underserved populations, and a composer in residence program. NMYO is the largest youth orchestra program in northeast Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire and is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
