Support Us

The McLean Youth Orchestra (MYO) is one of the premiere orchestral music programs for secondary school students in the Washington, D.C. area.  A not-for-profit McLean based orchestral group established by Tysons McLean Orchestra in 1983, the MYO provides the finest musical education to advanced middle and secondary students and an opportunity to experience the joy of performing a professional repertoire with a full orchestra.

Although the MYO charges annual tuition, these fees do not cover all expenses. We rely on the support of our generous patrons, businesses, foundations and government agencies to help fund the performance program.

There are several ways you can support the MYO.
