Membership is open to students ages 8-19 and all levels are welcome. For beginners, we require weekly lessons to be taken with a professional instructor. We offer professional in-home lessons at PYRO and this will ensure placement in one of the orchestras.
Tuition starts at just $895 to join the orchestra for the whole season which lasts 8 months. If you would like to join for the second half of the season, it is $525 and runs from mid-January until May. There are financing options for tuition payment that include monthly payments or break the total tuition into 3 easy payments. If there is more than one child participating, then there will be another 15% discount off the total tuition. Please download the forms above and fill out the membership agreement, member contact form and the audition application (if necessary).
All performing orchestras are scheduled to perform two to three regular season concerts per season. This year we plan on hosting FREE concerts so everyone can enjoy them! Each musician's family will receive two complimentary tickets to every concert if the concert is a ticketed event. Please refer to our Concerts Page for upcoming concert dates.
