Mission The Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestra provides superior music training, while guiding students toward a lifelong appreciation of classical music.

Vision The Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestra endeavors to be recognized as a premier youth orchestra, to engage students with unique musical experiences, and to develop the patrons and performers of tomorrow.

History The Tampa Metropolitan Youth was conceived by FloriMezzo Inc., the Orchestra's parent organization, in 2011. FloriMezzo Inc. has provided Bay Area community musicians, music teachers and students the opportunity to develop educationally and artistically through participation in regularly scheduled classical music concerts since 2003. The organization is founded on the philosophy that quality, live classical music will foster an enduring audience when community musicians with varied musical experience and backgrounds collaborate as educators, mentors and performers.
