The Kawartha Youth Orchestra

Kawartha Youth Orchestra is a community music and orchestra-training organization serving elementary through post-secondary-aged youth. Our students come from numerous communities in the Kawartha Region of Central Ontario. Each year we enroll students who want to be challenged beyond their school music experience. Our conductors and faculty are accomplished musicians with extensive backgrounds in performance and music education. As a registered non-profit, charitable organization, KYO values its partnership with local school music programs, private teachers, and other community performance organizations, who share in the development of our student musicians.

KYO operates two program streams:
  • The Orchestras, a fee-based orchestra-training program for instrumentalists aged 8-28 years.
  • UPBEAT! Downtown, a subsidized after-school music education program for Peterborough children who face barriers.


We inspire our musicians and our instructors to develop and cultivate a love for music, and to share their music and passion with the community.
