Hello Uptown Saint John!

Did you know that the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra was founded in Saint John in 1965 by Phillip Oland? In fact, the NBYO is the first provincial youth orchestra in Canada.

Today there are 20 Saint John area young musicians in the 80-member orchestra. Ranging in age from 12-22, the members are from french and english communities across New Brunswick.

We are coming home to Saint John on Sunday, February 24th for two concerts at the Imperial Theatre. It's our annual collaboration concert with a special guest artist.

In the past few years, we've partnered with the swing standards of Jill Barber, the rhythmn and blues of Matt Anderson, and even hip hop with Radio Radio. This year we play outlaw country with the award-winning The Divorcees.

It's an exciting and maybe even a little dangerous musicial collaboration - Outlaws & Oboes!

Hope to see you there.
