The MAYO Mission*
The Musical Arts Youth Organization's mission is to provide musical training and performance opportunities for young musicians, offer free concerts for the community, and to nurture a love for music in our youth.
- MAYO serves Monroe and surrounding counties for students up to age 26.
- MAYO will provide services that train young people in the classical field of strings, symphony, and chamber music.
- MAYO provides services that allow young people to experience jazz and other popular genres in small group performance and rehearsal-based experiences.
Students of all ages, from grade school through college, are welcome to audition for MAYO. Financial assistance is available for any who may need it. Musicians are expected to participate in their school music programs and to study their instruments seriously.
