Virtual FRYO is Here!

The Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra conductors and Board of Directors have developed a virtual program to engage our student musicians and foster their love of music. Virtual FRYO includes remote rehearsals, master classes, and performance opportunities. We are offering a combined ensemble for Philharmonic and Symphonia and separate rehearsals for Concert Strings and Wind Ensemble.

Though we are apart, together we can Create Harmony.

Support FRYO

DSC_0445bFRYO relies on the support of the community to offer a fun, educational program that enriches students lives through music.

What is FRYO?

The Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra (FRYO) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing quality orchestral music opportunities for students in Frederick and the tri-state region. The orchestra is composed of students from public, private, and home-school settings who are interested in the opportunity to meet fellow dedicated musicians, and who wish to gain performance experience.


On behalf of FRYO, we express our gratitude and appreciation for the generous grant support of the Maryland State Arts Council and the Frederick Arts Council.
