LPS has announced for 2020-21 that all All-City ensembles (instrumental, orchestral, choral) will suspend the start of rehearsals until further notice. Auditions have concluded, but no rehearsals or meetings will occur through 1st quarter. Reassessment of the situation will be taken in October 2020.

The Junior Youth Orchestra is an all-district orchestra for students in grades 6–9 in the Lincoln Public School District. Participation is by audition. The Junior Youth Orchestra is an extension of the instrumental music program of the Lincoln Public Schools and serves to challenge and enrich the best players to become better — both as musicians and ensemble participants.
