Maryland's premiere string youth orchestra


For 35 years, FAME has brought together young string players from a variety of backgrounds with harmony of interest, purpose, commitment, and community service to make incredible music far beyond their years.

Musical training and the study of string orchestra and chamber repertoire are offered in an engaging, supportive, and non-competitive atmosphere. Current members figure prominently in All County and All State festivals, and alumni have gone on to attend prestigious conservatories and music schools across the country.

The orchestra serves the Baltimore metropolitan area, surrounding counties, and southern Pennsylvania. It is open to students from grades 7 through 12 by audition each September and January.
