Trenton Youth Orchestra (TYO) is an orchestra for students from Trenton Central High School. During weekly rehearsals, TYO members work with their Princeton student coaches on repertoire ranging from film scores to classical music, pop songs to commissioned compositions. Members also receive free private lessons from Princeton student teachers. Rehearsals take place every Saturday from 10AM to 12PM in Lee Rehearsal Room, and private lessons from 12PM to 1PM in the Effron practice rooms.
TYO has been fortunate enough to engage with some of the world’s leading musicians. In December 2019, the orchestra performed for Gustavo Dudamel during his welcome tour of Princeton University. And in April 2022, TYO opened for Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason's Princeton University Concerts debut.
TYO is grateful to Maestro Gustavo Dudamel and his foundation for their generous and longstanding support.
