The Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra is now in its 9th year of bringing together nearly 70 student musicians ages 5 to 18 from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley region to learn to play and perform orchestral music. Students play string, wind, and percussion instruments, attend weekly rehearsals in Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Aspen and play concerts throughout the valley. Scholarships for tuition and private lessons make the RFYO program affordable for all students. Information is available at www.RFYO.org
The Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra is part of the local nonprofit Roaring Fork Music Society.
