What is the PCYO?

     The Placer County Youth Orchestra is a community youth orchestra serving the Rocklin, Roseville, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Loomis, Newcastle, and Auburn areas. We focus on providing a comprehensive musical education to our students while fostering in them a sense of musicianship and duty to their community. It is our goal to work closely with schools, private teachers, and organizations throughout Placer County to make orchestral music available to everyone.
