The PYP, founded in 1924, is Americaâ€™s first established youth orchestra. Members of the association range in age from 7-23, are accepted based on audition and come from 100 different schools throughout Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington. There are five ensembles under the PYP umbrella. The Philharmonic Orchestra presents a full concert series in the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall that closely parallels that of a professional symphony orchestra.
