Bridging the gap between Asian cultural music tradition and Western musical styles, Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra offers young musicians ages 6 and up the opportunity for advanced study and performance. In three age appropriate orchestras, students rehearse once a week and present four formal concerts each year. The orchestra has performed in the Eisemann Center, St. Andrew United Methodist Church, and SMU Caruth Auditorium. Tuition starts at $310 for the August to May season. Summer activities include trips to the Orient.
