Schedule and Fees


Weekly rehearsals for the MYO begin September 11th 1:30-4pm on Sunday afternoons at the Old Firehouse in McLean.

MYO-Rep will rehearse Saturday mornings from 9am to 11am also at the Old Firehouse.

The first concert is in December. Rehearsals continue weekly until the last concert, which is in June. There are no rehearsals over Thanksgiving weekend, or during Fairfax County Schools spring break. For inclement weather, the MYO often follows Fairfax County Public School policy for inclement weather closing.  Please check the website for announcements if in doubt.

Musicians should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to rehearsal in order to be seated, warmed up and to play at the start of the rehearsal time. Students are expected to attend all rehearsals; exceptions are made for marching band and school commitments.


Tuition for the 2016-2017 season will be $700 for the MYO and $550 for MYO-Rep.    There are a limited number of need and/or merit based scholarships available.
