300 talented youth from the Capital Region of New York and western New England are selected by audition each year for positions in ESYO's nine performing ensembles.

Well known for its Youth Orchestra's participation in CBS 6's Melodies of Christmas (benefit concerts for the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Children's Hospital at Albany Med), ESYO's ensembles give approximately 25 ‐ 30 public performances a year.

ESYO reaches out to the community with an annual free concert for senior citizens, concerts for young people, recitals in nursing homes, and a music education program providing free, private, instrumental music lessons to inner‐city, low‐income youth in Albany and Schenectady.

Founded in 1979, ESYO has been recognized as a premier music education/performance program for youth and has received three prestigious national awards.
