Starting in 1970 as a community orchestra by Dr. Charles Moore, the Eastern Youth Orchestras (EYO) grew to include advanced high school musicians. The orchestras were conducted over many years by faculty members from the School of Music at East Carolina University. The senior orchestra is currently conducted by Dr. John O’Brien. A junior orchestra was formed in 2003 with the help of its current director Dr. Gregory Hurley, then a preparatory level under the nurturing direction of Wendy Bissinger. The EYO has been a springboard for many young musicians, and has several hundred alumni now teaching and performing music. EYO has selected the Imperial Centre for their fall outreach performance. Tickets will be made available on Etix no later than October 15th.
