Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras

Now in its 21st season, the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras (GNOYO) has filled a need in the city for high-quality orchestral experiences for school-age musicians. Begun in 1994 by a group of parents, interested Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra musicians and local music teachers, it offered membership by audition in its Sinfonia, an intermediate level string orchestra, and Philharmonia, a full orchestra for more advanced students on all orchestral instruments. The first performances in May 1995 were conducted by Carrie Telthorst at the University of New Orleans Performing Arts Center. The following season John Fairlie was appointed Conductor of the Philharmonia and Marta Jurjevich the Assistant Conductor as well as Conductor of the Sinfonia. In the fall of 1995, GNOYO became the “official youth orchestra” of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, accepted 75 students for its second season and hosted and performed a joint concert with the Midwest Young Artists Senior Orchestra from Chicago.

Having initially operated under the financial umbrella of the Greater New Orleans Suzuki Forum, GNOYO legally incorporated on February 26, 1996 as an independent non-profit arts organization in the State of Louisiana, achieved tax-exempt status as a 501(c) 3 organization and elected a board of directors. That year John Fairlie became its first Executive Director. The 1996 season saw GNOYO grow to one hundred participants, drawing students from as far away as Cut Off and Houma, Louisiana and Biloxi, Mississippi. Subsequent seasons included side-by-side performances with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the LPO’s Young Peoples’ Concerts Series and inclusion of GNOYO’s Instrument/Scholarship Program, an ambitious outreach program for aspiring young musicians of need. In March 1998 GNOYO collaborated with the New Orleans Ballet in a production of “Peter & the Wolf”.
