The Master Artists program is designed for dedicated LYO students to develop their chamber music skills through regular ensemble rehearsals, specifically scheduled coachings, performance opportunities, mentorship and outreach. This is guided through a collaboration between LYO and musicians of NouLou Chamber Players, Inc.  Master Artists enhances students’ leadership, communication and artistic expression. This will translate into large ensemble playing and other facets of student life beyond music.
