YES stands for Youth Ensemble of Strings. Founded 31 years ago, it is one of the extension programs of the Lincoln Public Schools instrumental music department. Students playing in the YES Orchestra can expect to be challenged musically and technically. This year’s orchestra is open to string students in grades 5–8. Students in YES are required to participate in their school’s instrumental music program. Students living in the Lincoln Public School district are welcome to audition for the orchestra.
