Frenship High School– 902 Dowden Road, Wolfforth, TX 79382 – The link below should help with directions:


When you arrive at the school (west of the water tower), please be aware that the front door will not be open. We are located at the “Door 18” location. The doors are clearly marked with numbers. When you get to Door 18, you will see a big Frenship Band truck (and probably the cars of the conductors, orchestra managers, and others who arrived early to help out). We are very grateful to Tom SoRelle and Frenship ISD for allowing us to use their lovely facilities.

In order to keep expenses in check, we are also asking for donations of food, drink, time, and muscles!

We are excited about this wonderful opportunity and sincerely hope you can join us!

Great News about our YOL Website!

Greetings all – our site is about to get a makeover. You may have noticed over the past few months that I have been posting everything on this homepage. Because of outdated and conflicting information stored in several places, I thought it best to put everything in one place (more like a bulletin board).

We realize how frustrating navigating the YOL site can be. Little by little, we have been updating and correcting information, but the time has come for a major renovation. YOL is grateful for the generosity and expertise of certain individuals (soon to be named) who are willing to help our site be more instinctive, easy to navigate, and beautiful.

Stay tuned!


2016 –2017 Preliminary Audition Results

Preliminary audition results for auditions held on February 27th, March 26th, and April 30th are ready – click on the link below. Please be aware that all of the results except for Symphony Strings are listed in alphabetical order. (Symphony Strings members, this is the tentative chair order, which will likely change once we have heard all auditions. The final chair order will be determined during the fall semester.)

I have found and corrected several spelling errors. If I have missed any others, PLEASE let me know ASAP by emailing info@youthorchestrasoflubbock.org. This list will be the beginning of our new roster for the 2016-17 season.
