The Senior Edmonton Youth Orchestra is privileged to have performed for Her Majesty and His Royal Highness during Royal Visit 2005 in celebration of Alberta's Centennial. The performance took place in Churchill Square on the main stage immediately below one of the two large screens set up so the events would be visible to all who attended.
The Royal couple arrived on the main
stage in Churchill Square while Michael Massey conducted
the orchestra. The EYO performed ballet music from Rosamunde
by Schubert, Waltz from Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikowsky,
Frenergy by Estacio, and Jupiter from Holst's The Planets.

The Edmonton Youth Orchestra Association
The Edmonton Youth Orchestra Association, formed in 1952, supports two nationally renowned symphony orchestras: The Intermediate Youth Orchestra, and The Senior Youth Orchestra. Through these two orchestras, the EYO's music program, one of the finest in Canada, provides the highest possible standard of orchestral training and experience to over 150 music students from age 11 to 24.
The EYO experience has a profound and lasting impact on the lives of EYO "graduates." Some become music teachers, members of professional orchestras, or soloists. All are motivated students sharing a love of music.Our program includes regular weekly rehearsals from September through May concert performances for each orchestra weekend workshops scholarships and a concerto competition jointly sponsored by the EYO and the Alberta Registered Music Teachers' Association. Players for both orchestras are selected by competitive auditions held each May. The annual membership fee is $200.
