What People are Saying About Us!

"The concert was incredibly impressive--really just jaw-droppingly good. Congratulations on an amazing year!" - Laura Berthiame

"Being in the Charles County Youth Orchestra is the best thing ever. It has taught me to play beautiful music with others and I made new friends who also love music..." - Evangeline Gilmer

"At first, when I joined CCYO, I was intimidated because everyone could play their instruments so well. It made me feel that I wasn't as talented in playing the violin as they are. But I realized that this was a challenge for me because if they could do it, I probably could too. It inspired me to practice harder music and learn better techniques. I've actually improved a lot ever since I joined CCYO. But it's not only that, the people in CCYO are so outgoing and nice. They encourage you and they help you to get better. You make friends in CCYO and all of you share the same love for music." - Rae Angala

Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form. - Plato
