ROCA is deeply passionate about our community outreach and education program. That is why we are thrilled to introduce our newest endeavor, the Young Orchestra Mentorship Program, or YOMP!  YOMP is a scholarship program that aims to encourage young musicians who have a strong interest in developing their musical potential and artistry. They will be auditioning to join the orchestra for our Beethoven and Brahms concert. 

I've played in ROCA's orchestra since I was in high school, and I remember how exhilarating it was to be able to make music on such a large scale. What I remembered most was the kindness and direction that the orchestra members provided me, and the musical knowledge and life tips that they generously passed on to me. This is the kind of environment that I want our new musicians to be experience and to be part of.  

We hope to develop future talents by exploring the potential of these students in this musical environment. This music adventure also aims to connect new musicians our wonderful community members in our orchestra, and we look forward to introducing these talented musicians at our next concert.  We hope that you are able to join us in welcoming these musicians in this new journey with ROCA!
