Congratulations Victoria on an amazing performance in the Annual DYAO Concerto Competition!

Here at DYAO, we are working hard to address the short term needs and impact that COVID-19 is having on our educational programs and the community. In order to comply with CDC and local government regulations, we need to extend our programming suspension through the end of our regular season. This means both of our spring concerts will, unfortunately, be canceled. Our orchestra rehearsals and our upcoming gala will continue online with an adjusted format.
