The goal of the Young Artists Debut Orchestra (YADO), in residence at Mercyhurst College, is to provide a framework in which music students ages 6-21, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, economic background, sex or disability, have the opportunity to engage in a comprehensive music program of the highest quality that will substantially supplement their school-music activities. To accomplish this goal, the YADO offers: music instruction from a distinguished faculty; a minimum of 4 public performances each year; solo opportunities with the orchestra; an instrument to practice on; participation in small ensembles; mentoring & coaching by professional musicians; a conductor with international credentials; and an annual field trip to hear a world renowned symphony orchestra. These attributes function synergistically to create an artistic environment that fosters our students’ educational development on all levels.
