Updated for 2020-21 Season: Youth Chamber Connection (YC²) is a music program administrated by Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras (TRYPO) in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra (PYSO), offering chamber music education and community-service performance opportunities to young musicians in the Pittsburgh and tri-state area. Our 2020-21 Season is Hybrid, we will offer online chamber music coachings and rehearsal time; and, when the risk of the virus is minimal, we will also offer optional in-person opportunities.
Students are matched based on age, playing and interest level, and schedule availability. Coaches meet with groups weekly, rehearsal times will be set at a mutually convenient time. Students will produce a recording of their music for each semester’s finale event. Tuition is $500, tuition assistance is available, and members of TRYPO or PYSO large ensemble are eligible for a discount. All interested young musicians, approximately aged 8-19 are welcome.
