Maine Youth Rock Orchestra Rock Orchestra

  • 2015

Maine Youth Rock Orchestra is a non-profit 501(c)(3) program in part with the Maine Academy of Modern Music, that provides orchestral string students ages 10-18 the opportunity to work alongside and perform with professional artists in an alternative setting. Since our founding in 2014, MYRO has performed at 5 venues across Maine with 20 artists, providing concert experiences that feature all genres of music. Our young artists have produced 2 music videos, 1 of which for ConverseĀ® Rubber Tracks with The Ballroom Thieves, and will be producing two more over the course of 2016. For the 2015-2016 season, MYRO will be performing in Boston, Burlington, NYC, Portland, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., allowing our talented orchestral students the opportunity to showcase the experiences that the great state of Maine has to offer.
