Portland Youth Philharmonic


The nation’s first youth orchestra returns to the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall with five exciting performances (listed below)! Celebrate Portland’s most dedicated young musicians as they perform both classical favorites and rarely-heard works, bringing an unrivaled energy to each piece.

Since 1924, Portland Youth Philharmonic has been committed to inspiring young musicians throughout Oregon and Southern Washington, while providing the highest quality music education possible. The orchestra has a tradition of excellence in education and performance dating back to our first concert in 1925.

Critics have hailed PYP’s performances as “Brilliant” and have commented that the orchestra “Roared like a Maserati!” But don’t take their word for it. Hear PYP for yourself at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or at any time on our popular YouTube channel.
