Welcome to Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestras (ESYO)

Founded in 1934, the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestras (ESYO) is one of the oldest non-profit organizations in the area! Our mission is to provide opportunities for youth to experience, appreciate, and perform orchestral music. We offer high quality instruction, from beginning classes through advanced orchestras. Need-based scholarships are available for program fees and/or private lessons to any family that needs one. Collaborating with area schools and arts organizations, ESYO continues to enrich and encourage young musicians while helping grow the culture of music education in our community.

Thank you for your support during this especially difficult time. The coronavirus crisis has left many organizations such as ours working even harder to fulfill our mission. Your generosity can really help. Thank you and stay well!



Since 1934, ESYO has provided a place for young musicians to LEARN, GROW, LEAD and PLAY!  Can you help continue this one-of-a-kind legacy?
