About ESYO’s CHIME and Empire State Youth Orchestras: The Empire State Youth Orchestra’s Creating Harmony Invigorating Music Education—ESYO’S CHIME—was conceived in 2013 as a means to empower underserved youth to develop a strong sense of personal identity and community through musical literacy. Inspired by El Sistema, ESYO’s CHIME seeks to promote positive social change through music. Empire State Youth Orchestras (ESYO), now beginning its 36th season, includes nine performing ensembles comprising over 300 young musicians. CHIME has emerged from a desire to expand on ESYO’s highly successful “in-school” City Instruments Training Program which has provided free private music lessons to underserved students during the school day for over 17 years. ESYO’S CHIME is poised to launch in September, 2015 at Yates Magnet Elementary School in Schenectady, NY. CHIME will take place every day after school from 2:15-4:30 and will serve 60 students in K-4.
