Calgary Youth Orchestra (CYO) is Mount Royal University Conservatory's internationally acclaimed ensemble and one of Canada’s leading community youth orchestras, comprised of approximately 65 musicians ages 14 to 24.

The CYO provides opportunities for unique musical, educational and cultural experiences for all young musicians in the greater Calgary area. Its members include students from Mount Royal University, the University of Calgary, and junior and senior high schools from Calgary and surrounding area.

The CYO is committed to the development of youth and to excellence in musicianship, and promotes musical skill and discipline, personal commitment, teamwork and community service.

Professional coaching from some of the best local, national and international clinicians and conductors, and workshops with guest conductors and visiting orchestras are a regular feature of the program. The orchestra performs a series of concerts throughout the year, participates in the annual Alberta Youth Orchestra Symposium in Banff, and tours internationally.

The CYO is supported by the Calgary Youth Orchestra Society, a non-profit society incorporated in the Province of Alberta. Musical direction is provided by Mount Royal University Conservatory.
