Our Focus

La Jeunesse Youth Orchestra provides young musicians with the stimulating experience of performing a wide range of symphonic repertoire and performs full orchestral concerts in December, February and May.

The Orchestra serves students from the region bounded by Oshawa, Belleville, and Lindsay. Concert tours of private and public schools, and field trips to professional performances, are integral to our season calendar.
