The Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras’ program inspires its members to achieve their highest potential while working together in an atmosphere of mutual respect, support, and teamwork.
The Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestras (GNOYO) offers boys, from ages 6-19, the opportunity to participate in the New Orleans Boys’ Choir (NOBC). The NOBC aims to enrich boys’ lives through vocal training, a vital component in the development of well-rounded musicians. Many of the world’s great composers and musicians participated in boys’ choirs. The NOBC fills this vital role for the greater New Orleans community by combining vocal and instrumental education for its students.
NOBC participants meet on Saturday afternoons from 5:45-6:30pm at Loyola School of Music for weekly choir rehearsals to prepare for at least three concerts each season in partnership with the GNOYO instrumental ensembles. Those participants not already playing an instrument will be matched with an instrument and will take private lessons through the Endangered Instruments Program
