• Beginning at the fifth-grade level, the String Orchestra program is offered to all interested fifth-grade students as part of a sequential instructional program that continues through middle and high school. Two auditioned countywide orchestra ensembles provide challenges beyond the classroom – the Middle School Youth Orchestra (MSYO, gr. 6-8) and the Cumberland County Youth Orchestra (CCYO, gr. 9-12). While a string ensemble in the fall, CCYO expands to a full orchestra with the addition of band students in the spring.  The All County High School and Middle School Orchestra clinics, provide a rigorous two-day clinic with guest conductors, and provides orchestra students with an exceptional opportunity for learning. In addition, the Annual Pops in the Park Concert is a concert at the end of the school year featuring our All County, MSYO and CCYO groups.  It is a fun, family-friendly event held at Festival Park with food trucks and great music.
