The Youth Ensemble of New England
A Non-Profit Organization
The Youth Ensemble of New England is comprised of around 35 young musicians ages 10 to 20. The orchestra rehearses at Thayer Conservatory in Lancaster, Massachusetts, and plays over 30 concerts a year in local venues including schools, churches, libraries, assisted livings, and for other community organizations. They have played many concerts for charities and have a special interest in performing for children's charity organizations such as an orphanage for the children of AIDS victims in Zimbabwe, Africa, and for organizations formed to help children affected by natural disasters as well as fundraisers for music schools and various music festivals.
The mission of the Youth Ensemble of New England is to inspire young musicians to learn and love great orchestral repertoire and to perform with excellence this heritage of orchestral music for audiences both near and far.
