About Us

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. TMYO is operated through the 501(c)(3) non profit, FloriMezzo, Inc.
