InterSchool Orchestras of New York
Founded in 1972, the InterSchool Orchestras of New York provides a comprehensive youth orchestra program that allows children to perform in an ensemble of their peers. Four graded orchestras lie at the heart of ISO’s programs, providing performance opportunities based on musical ability — not the ability to pay tuition. More than 80% of our young musicians receive some degree of financial assistance.
InterSchool Orchestras of New York is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
