It is widely regarded as one of the finest youth orchestra programs in Canada and gives 150 young musicians from Edmonton and Northern Alberta the opportunity to develop their orchestral skills, to increase their knowledge and appreciation of music, and to enrich the cultural life of the community through concerts and benefit performances.
