Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra

The Central Kentucky Youth Orchestras (CKYO) is one of the oldest, independently chartered youth orchestras in the United States, with a tradition dating back to 1947. Over 300 students gather from 11 counties and 48 area schools to participate in CKYO. We offer five orchestras; Symphony, Concert, Repertory, Preparatory Strings, and Jazz Arts as well as opportunities to participate in chamber ensembles. 

For Howard Pence, a Lexington area music teacher, the dream began in 1947 with 14 local high school string players. Pence was hoping to provide quality learning and performance opportunities for talented young musicians and, in turn, to bring cultural enrichment to audiences throughout the state and country. With the help of Thornton Scott, Chester Travelstead and eleven other dedicated citizens, Howard Pence realized his dream as his 14 string players grew to 49 players and a full Youth Symphony Orchestra in 1949. By following his dream, Pence created one of the oldest, independently chartered youth orchestras in the United States.

YOUTH ORCHESTRA

Children ages five to eighteen from eight surrounding counties participate in weekly orchestra rehearsals and perform for audiences throughout the year. Participation in orchestras develops children’s skills in socialization and teamwork, and teaches them self-discipline and self-esteem. Orchestra Kentucky began the youth orchestra program in 2001 because orchestra is not widely available in our area public schools.

Dr. Brian St. John is the Baker Professor of Music and Director of Orchestras at Western Kentucky University. Out of his 23 years of professional conducting he has 16 years of experience with student and youth orchestras. Dr. St. John has written and premiered eight ballets designed for young musicians and dancers.
