Calling all orchestra and band students! We invite you to join us and participate in a rehearsal free of charge to see if it is an experience you would like to pursue. Bring your instrument and we will place you in one of our ensembles that matches your skill level. Or if you have a friend who is an OPYO member, you are free to sit with them if you'd like. There will be a reception for parents to meet the conductors from 5:45-6:15pm. Come see what we are all about!
We are excited to announce our new YSO conductor and artistic director, Dr. Robert Mueller, who will be joining us for the upcoming season! We will be holding two audition sessions for the fall:
Rehearsals will be held each Monday evening, from 6-8pm, at Arkansas Arts Academy (7-12 campus), 506 W. Poplar in Rogers. The first rehearsal will be Monday, September 9.
We look forward to Dr. Mueller's leadership and musical training for our students. Below is a message from our new director:
Greetings to all OPYO musicians and families,
My name is Dr. Robert Mueller, and I'm currently Professor of Music at the University of Arkansas, where I conduct the University Symphony Orchestra and teach music composition. I am honored to accept the position as OPYO's Artistic Director and conductor of the YSO this season, and I look forward to hearing your auditions next month.
OPYO has had a long history of excellence in training young orchestral musicians, and in fact my own three children all played in the OPYO program for many years. It will be a pleasure to explore exciting orchestral repertoire with you in the upcoming seasons.
