The AYPO Percussion Ensemble was founded by its Director, Doug Wallace, in 2001. Originally created as a chamber music opportunity for the percussion section of the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra, the quality and popularity of the ensemble has grown immensely. As one of the premier ensembles within the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestras organization, the AYPO Percussion Ensemble is proud to have graduated some of the finest high school percussionists in the country. Since its inception in 2001, the cooperative curriculum between the percussion ensemble and the orchestral program has produced students who have gone on to pursue music at The Juilliard School, The Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, The New England Conservatory, Boston University, Yale University, The University of Michigan, Northwestern University, The Cleveland Institute of Music, The Peabody Conservatory, The University of Miami, and DePaul University. The Percussion Ensemble has recently gained national acclaim through its two performances at the Music for All National Percussion Festival in Indianapolis, IN (2012 and 2015).

Recognized as one of the leading orchestral training programs in the nation, the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestras (AYPO) provides competitive world-class training and performance opportunities for musicians up to 21 years of age. With a nationally recognized artistic staff, a dedicated professional staff, and a host of volunteers, AYPO annually selects and trains more than 400 of the area’s most talented young musicians. AYPO delivers programs of the highest caliber throughout the Washington metropolitan region, earning an unrivaled reputation for excellence and distinction. AYPO has represented youth in the arts through performances at Strathmore, the Kennedy Center, the National Gallery of Art, Carnegie Hall, the National Orchestral Festival, the International Rachmaninoff Festival (Novgorod, Russia), the Aberdeen International Youth Festival (Scotland), the British Festival of Youth Orchestras, the Festival of Youth Orchestras (Chicago and Washington, D.C.), and the Spoleto Festival (South Carolina). Through the orchestras and ensembles, young people with a common interest, commitment, and discipline work together to achieve harmony and excellence. In concert, these young musicians share their remarkable achievement and appreciation for classical music with the community. www.aypo.org
