Summer European Music Study JULY Spain and France Summer European Music Study JULY Spain and France
The Texas Youth Orchestra & Choir Comprised of students ages 15-21, interested in performing with other like- minded students, learning more about their art form, and exploring Europe and European culture. Touring major cities of Barcelona, Arles, Dordogne, Normandy and Paris July 9 - July 21, 2015
The TYOC organization endeavors to provide a quality education from top music educators from across our state. We enable Texas students to reach across international borders to further their own study of music and learn about the cultures of Europe.
To see, to learn, to perform …to experience
Our Vision Music is the universal language. It crosses international borders, unifies cultures, uplifts the spirit, and conveys so much, with so little. The discovery of new countries, cultures, languages, and friends broadens our knowledge and furthers our understanding of our world.
Directors who love to travel The TYOC directors have a wealth of music education, expertise, and enthusiasm, but no amount of accolades, trophies, and competitions can compare with the opportunity to perform and tour throughout Europe.
Each of the directors had an inspiring, life- changing opportunity in their youth, which instilled in them a passion to learn more about their craft, and to convey their love and joy for music and travel.
Our 2015 tour features the beautiful cities of Barcelona,, Montserrat, Arles, Carcassone, Brive-la-Gaillard, Normandy and Paris. Your desire to convey music across cultures makes our global voyage within your reach.
