Classical Music Rocks!



The La Jeunesse Youth Orchestra posed for a promotional photo shoot in front of the walls and folly we built at the Dry Stone Walling Across Canada 2005 festival in Port Hope Ontario. 

The orchestra has continued to provide an educational and musical environment for the past 18 years for young musicians with the stimulating experience of performing a wide range of symphonic repertoire. The LJYO performs full orchestral programs in December, February and May.

The Orchestra serves students from the region bounded by Oshawa, Belleville, and Peterborough. Concert tours of private and public schools, and field trips to professional performances, are integral to the season calendar.

LJYO’s 17th season begins with their annual concert ‘Home for The Holidays’, scheduled for Sunday December 6 at 3pm at Port Hope United Church. LJYO welcomes special guests The Voices of Cambridge Street United Choirs from Lindsay, Ontario. In addition to collaborating with LJYO every second year, this amazing chorus, under the directorship of Erwin Stroobach, has performed widely across Ontario, Quebec, The East Coast and New York City.

‘Home for The Holidays’ features seasonal favorites including Christmas at the Movies, All is Well, Breath of Heaven, Christmas Festival and more. The premiere performance of Gloria, an original composition by Erwin Stroobach, is sure to delight.

Also on the concert lineup this season are ‘In the Spotlight’, February 28, 2016, featuring solos by some of our most talented musicians, and ‘Sonic Bloom’, May 15, 2016, the annual welcome to spring. Soup and Symphony, the annual soup and silent auction fundraiser, returns April 9, 2016.
