Ensembles — Portland
Instruction in Orchestra, Band & Jazz
MYS offers 15 ensembles for students ages 6 - 18. Students need only one year of experience on an instrument to audition and may play in as many ensembles for which they qualify at no extra cost. Following an audition, students are placed in the most advanced ensemble the conductors feel will be a good fit, where students are challenged musically but can succeed and have fun. Ensembles are listed in order of entry level to advanced. Click the titles and read below for descriptions on our orchestra, band, percussion, and jazz ensembles. Please note that MYS owns some instruments that may be available for loan, but serious students should consider purchasing their own.
