According to the latest US Census (2010), Wake Forest has a population of over 35,600 residents. School-aged children make up 34.2% of the population (US Census, 2010). As the population grows, so does the need for the Town of Wake Forest to establish partnerships with organizations that meet both the current and projected interests of the population.
Currently, no public school opportunities to participate in orchestra exist in the Town of Wake Forest for Pre-K through 7th grade students. The Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra provides a unique opportunity for all youth to receive orchestral training within their community. Therefore, a partnership between the Town of Wake Forest, community patrons, and the Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra would be highly beneficial to the entire community in which we serve.
