How much does playing in the SPYO cost?
The entire season costs $100. For that fee, you get to practice your orchestral playing skills at all of our rehearsals while being coached by our conductor, Dr. Daniel Atwood, play 3 concerts featuring music from master composers, play with guest soloists like Jonathan Okseniuk (violin) and Gage Ellis (trumpet), and work with composers like Frank Darmiento on their original compositions.

Do I need to take private lessons to play in the SPYO?
No. We encourage you to take private lessons, but it is not required.
