Community Orchestra in Seattle

Hit the right note--with the Phinney Ridge Youth Orchestra!

The PRYO is a youth orchestra in Seattle. We are dedicated to playing string orchestra repertoire from the Renaissance until Now.  We have premiered pieces written for the PRYO, played authentic film scores, as well as arrangements of popular music.

We perform three to five concerts a year, including performing at the Royal Room and the Phinney Farmer's Market.

About us

Conductor Todd Kovell founded the PRO, a community orchestra in Seattle. He is an award-winning composer whose pieces have been played not only at Benaroya and other Seattle venues, but in Europe and Australia as well. A graduate of the composition department at the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory, Todd currently teaches theory classes at the Seattle Film Institute's film scoring program, where he was hired by Emmy-award winning composer Hummie Mann. Todd is a pro at arranging difficult pieces to make them playable for anyone.

We have fun!

The PRYO is perfect for home-schooled students, students without a school music program, serious music students who may have started when they were older, or for families who can not afford the larger youth symphony associations

We rehearse at the Phinney Neighborhood Association in Greenwood.
