The Greater Toledo International Youth Orchestra's Senior Ensemble was formed during the inaugural season GTiYO. Music director and conductor Yang Kun Song realized that there are younger musicians who were in need of rehearsal and performance groups. The senior ensemble accounts for kids age 10-18 and is from outside of our immediate local communities within Toledo. GTiYO began when younger students to reach out and express interest in such an ensemble. GTiYO gives young adults and parents the opportunity to groom their child/ children into musicians with early exposure to the collaborative art of chamber music. By giving children the unique opportunity to play level appropriate chamber music and provide training, Yang Kun Song has found a child's ability to quickly build confidence excels, that will serve their musical careers.
