So Many Ensembles. One Shared Love of Music.
Young people achieve amazing things at GCTYO. They develop their talents beyond what they thought possible and feel pride and joy in their accomplishments. Greater Connecticut Youth Orchestras’ holistic approach to music education means we inspire and challenge students at every stage of their music development while making sure they feel supported by their conductors and peers.
Christopher Hisey has been Music Director and visionary at GCTYO for nearly fifteen years.
His artistic leadership inspires the entire music staff to bring out the best in every student musician. Mr. Hisey is also a graduate of GCTYO and has been involved with the organization for more than 30 years. Under his leadership, GCTYO has grown from two ensembles to more than a dozen.
