The Little Delaware Youth Ensemble welcomes our new music director, Uli Speth! LDYE was founded in 2000 by former music director, Julie Signitzer, and a group of dedicated parents seeking to provide ensemble experience for their young musicians. Today, approximately forty string students, ages 6-18, 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.
