InterSchool Orchestras of NYC

Founded in 1972, the ISO of New York makes it possible for any child to learn an instrument and perform in an ensemble of his/her peers. Eight graded orchestras and a symphonic band lie at the heart of ISO’s programs, providing performance opportunities based on musical ability — not ability to pay tuition.  A great extension of the SMS experience.
