Hernando Youth Orchestra

Arts Council Grant Spotlight 1: The Hernando Youth Orchestra

An orchestra that allows the young people of this area to develop and showcase their musical talents. An orchestra that performs free of charge for the community, and costs nothing to join. Since 2007, the Hernando Youth Orchestra has made the vibrant, time-honoured rhythms and cadences of classical music resound throughout the county. And now the orchestra, a non-profit agency which features young musicians ages 5-21, has received a $300 Community Arts Grant from the Hernando County Fine Arts Council.

A great opportunity for kids: the Hernando Youth Orchestra

Weeki Wachee - With the cutbacks that public schools are making to music programs, kids are more dependent on the community to provide musical opportunities. One of these opportunities is the Hernando Youth Orchestra. The Youth Orchestra rehearses Sunday afternoons from 3:30pm to 5:00pm at The Heather Community Center, 9100 Nakoma Way, Weeki Wachee, FL. Parents and visitors are welcome at practices.
