The Little Delaware Youth Ensemble was founded in 2000 by Julie Signitzer and a group of dedicated parents seeking to provide ensemble experience for their young musicians. Today, approximately thirty string students, ages 8-18, come from four counties in upstate New York to rehearse weekly in Oneonta. Each season, LDYE members present three public concerts and host a two-day workshop with renowned guest musicians.
By providing musical leadership of the highest quality, experience with original repertoire from widely varied genres, and the stimulation of a cooperative learning environment, LDYE has established a unique culture of excellence.
