Since 1968, the Lima Area Youth Orchestra has brilliantly showcased the talent of our region’s most accomplished young musicians. The orchestra is comprised of approximately 80 students representing Lima, Wapakoneta, Celina, St. Marys, Elida, Findlay, Bluffton, Waynesfield, Ada, Ottoville and others.


The Lima Noon Optimists and the Lima Symphony Orchestra share a common passion regarding the development of young musicians and have co-sponsored the Lima Area Youth Orchestra for more than 40 years. They represent a bright future for our orchestra and our community. 

The Youth Orchestra, under the direction of Conductor Dr. Sara Waters, will perform a festive Holiday Concert on December 22, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. 


These fine young musicians will also perform a Children’s Concert for area elementary students on Tuesday, March 4, 2020 at 9:30 a.m. and a Spring Concert as part of the Lima Symphony Orchestra’s season series on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lima Senior High School Auditorium.

The Lima Area Youth Orchestra's finale concert has been postponed until further notice.
