The Orion Youth Orchestra is a program of the Annapolis Symphony Academy, committed to changing lives by providing a high-level musical education to students of all cultural and economic backgrounds, while addressing the under-representation of minority musicians in the classical music field. The Orion Youth Orchestra is able to provide a tuition free educational experience thanks to the support of generous              donors and the institutional backing of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. 

All Annapolis Symphony Academy activities (including the Orion Youth Orchestra) take place in Temple Beth Shalom, 1461 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd, Arnold, MD.
