Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra

Partnering to provide String Music Education to all youth.  

Our vision is to serve as a global epicenter for Music Education instruction, training, and professional development.    

According to the latest US Census (2010), Wake Forest has a population of over 35,600 residents. School-aged children make up 34.2% of the population (US Census, 2010). As the population grows, so does the need for the Town of Wake Forest to establish partnerships with organizations that meet both the current and projected interests of the population.

Currently, no public school opportunities to participate in orchestra exist in the Town of Wake Forest for Pre-K through 7th grade students. The Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra provides a unique opportunity for all youth to receive orchestral training within their community. Therefore, a partnership between the Town of Wake Forest, community patrons, and the Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra would be highly beneficial to the entire community in which we serve.

Our mission is to strengthen and sustain the orchestral landscape of the Town of Wake Forest by providing an array of diverse orchestral training programs for all youth, beginning in Pre-K through 12th grade.

Thank you WCPE Education Fund

Our 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization was founded upon the ideal that all children regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, or gender deserve the opportunity to participate in an affordable comprehensive orchestral training program within their community. A participant will never be turned away for lack of an instrument or inability to pay.
