Join us for a holiday music concert and singalong with students from the Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra! Feel free to sing along or sit back and enjoy listening to a variety of holiday music from many traditions. Families and young children are always encouraged to attend.
The Roaring Fork Youth Orchestra, now in its 12th year, brings together 65 students from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley region to rehearse and perform classical and traditional music. A program of the Roaring Fork Music Society, a longtime local nonprofit, the RFYO aims to make high quality orchestral music education affordable and accessible to all students through scholarships and a lending library of instruments. Student musicians, ages 6 to 18, from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley region come together to rehearse weekly after school in New Castle, Carbondale and Aspen. There are multiple ensembles so that beginner through advanced students who play string, wind, brass or percussion instruments may all take part. Our newest group, the RFYO Musica, brings violin group class and lessons to beginner students at Cactus Valley Elementary.
