Youth Chamber Connection Spring Registration!

Youth Chamber Connection Spring Registration!

Presented by Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestra at Duquesne University

Spring Semester Tuition- $250 (Household/Ensemble Discount: Households that have a child registered in PYSO or in a TRYPO large ensemble for 2021-22 may be eligible for a discount of $50 per semester).

Youth Chamber Connection (YC²) offers chamber music education, enrichment, and community-service performance opportunities for members of Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras (TRYPO), the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra (PYSO), and other interested young musicians. YC² is administrated by TRYPO staff. All musicians (approx. ages 8-19) are welcome to apply, regardless of your music program affiliation. Our goal is to expose as many students as possible to the joy and finesse of playing chamber music!

Groups meet 45 minutes with their coach each week, plus most groups also rehearse up to another 45 minutes on their own, strengthening their skills in leadership, listening, cooperation, and learning to make their own musical decisions. YC² coachings/rehearsals are scheduled at a convenient time for all members of the group. Students with a variety of availability in their weekly schedule have the best chance of being well-matched into a chamber group.

We offer a financial aid and scholarship program to assist deserving, eligible students. Families should not be discouraged from applying to YC² due to financial limitations. YC² is administrated by TRYPO, in partnership with PYSO. Both are 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations committed to keeping costs as low as possible without diminishing the quality or depth of programming, and ensuring that no deserving young musician be denied participation based on financial means. Especially after the year(s) we have all endured, our scholarship program is easier than ever to receive what you need.

Admission Info

Students interested in joining a quartet or quintet for the 2022 Spring Semester should complete their Spring Semester Registration by January 8, 2022 for the best chance at placement into a chamber group. Later registrations are still welcome, and we will work hard to try to find a match for you.

Most groups will receive their first rehearsal date, time, and location mid-January and will begin meeting soon after. Some exceptions may apply if we are still recruiting to complete a group.
