AYS Reading Orchestra

The Albuquerque Youth Symphony Program Reading Orchestra is open to everyone regardless of age, skill level, or affiliation with AYSP. Auditions are not required, there is no fee, and you do not need to be involved in AYSP or be an alumni.

The Reading Orchestra meets most months on the second or third Sunday of the month. Repertoire is a single piece and designed to be fun and challenging, but on an advanced high school level.

How it works:

  • Register using the form for Winds or Strings
  • Download the music
  • Meet from 3:00 - 6:00 pm at the AYS Program Facility at 4407 Menaul Blvd. NE.
  • Work through the piece
  • Take a break
  • Play through without stopping.
