There’s a brand new group for young musicians in town!  The Junior Kawartha Youth Orchestra (JKYO) will begin rehearsals Wednesday, October 5th from 6:00 – 7:30 at Long and McQuade in Peterborough.  This orchestra will be a direct feeder into the Kawartha Youth Orchestra and is available for children ages 8 +.  There are NO AUDITIONS REQUIRED however all musicians must be able to read music and have some experience on their primary instrument. Cost is $325/musician for a year’s membership running from October to May.   Financial assistance may be available through “Teachers 4 Kids” and a City of Peterborough “Subsidy for Youth” program.  Marilyn Chalk is the Music Director of the JKYO.   She also conducts the “Friends in Music” band as well as maintaining her very busy piano studio in Peterborough.  Our website is for more information and pre-registration.
