The YRSO resumed rehearsals for its 2021-22 season in August. The orchestra is preparing to present an outdoor concert at the Watermen's Museum in Yorktown on Sunday, October 17th at 2 p.m. We invite you to join us for lively music of a century ago as we present the Roaring Twenties. We will also feature cello soloist Erin Hines performing Bruch's Kol Nidrei with the orchestra. This concert will be free to the public. Details about composers and works can be found on the Seasons page.

Due to the collapse in April of the roof of Templin Hall, TNCC, Hampton, we are unable to return to the auditorium which has been our home venue since 2008. Our concert venues and dates for the remainder of the season have not yet been confirmed. We will update them here as they become available. There will be no Young Artists Concerto Competition in November 2021.
