Leander A. Kirksey Youth Orchestra (LAKYO), led by violinist Patrice Floyd, provides string orchestra training to predominantly elementary school-aged student musicians who read music and have at least two years of playing experience on their instruments. Masterclasses presented by renowned faculty-artists from the States and abroad, local university professors, and local graduate students provide mentorship. Weekly rehearsals focus on technique, ensemble performance skills, and standard introductory string repertoire. The LAKYO season includes two performances at local venues.
