This organization is a good way for students in Columbus and its surrounding areas to get involved in music and meet others with similar interests. Both the string and full orchestras are given chances throughout each season to perform amazing pieces that they practice diligently on every rehearsal. Thanks to the hard work and commitment from Dottie Brown, Jim Palmer and the Board, this organization has been and will be able to continue enriching and motivating young musicians here.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

always seeing a few new people join every year.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

having regular performances, being able to connect with other musicians and friends and participating in the summer camp program.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed to making this organization more and more successful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

travel, afford new music, hire high-class guest musicians and conductors to work with us, pay for private lessons/tuition to those who don't have the means to, and expand the summer program to other instrument groups besides strings.

The Youth Orchestra has done many things for me in the past 7 months. YOGC has helped me to become a better musician through exposure to different generes of music, a chance to play with advanced students, and time of intruction with university proffesors and students. Youth Orchestra is the best performing group I have been a part of and without it, my musical talents would not be where they are today. Thanks to Mr. Palmer(director), Mrs.Dottie Brown, and the Board

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to play and perform with upper level musicians and to be under the direction of such an amazing director
