YOUTH ORCHESTRAS OF FRESNO

Our three orchestras accommodate young musicians of all levels, kindergarten through college. The orchestras currently serve 260 young players from seven Central Valley counties (Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Tulare) representing a full complement of socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities. We have an additional 65 students in our free after-school Accent on Access Violin Program. Our dynamic Music Director is Dr. Thomas Loewenheim, cellist and professor at CSU Fresno, who is known for his ability to unite through musical vision.
