About Us

Always Something Going On

Welcome to the East Texas Youth Orchestra!  Our Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra and Jazz Academy have an exciting 2019-2020 season planned!  Our conductors, Felix Torres, Sarah Reason and Sarah Roberts bring thrilling repertoire to our ensembles and lead weekly rehearsals with enthusiasm and expertise!  In addition to our four classical concerts, this season will feature our third annual ETYO Concerto Competition, our Jazz Academy performance at the Jazz Educators Network 2020 Convention in New Orleans, and two side-by-side concerts with the Mesquite Symphony Orchestra.  We are excited about the opportunity to rehearse with, learn from and perform next to MSO professional musicians.


Come Join Us!

Auditions are open for the upcoming season to all area string, woodwind, brass, and percussion students, up to age 22.  We encourage young musicians of all levels to audition and participate in ETYO to build experience, broaden their musical talents and repertoire, and to make beautiful music with friends.  Click HERE for more information.  Should you need further assistance, feel free to contact us at, or by phone at 903-952-3896.
