Welcome to the HYP!

Located in south-central Indiana, Bloomington High Schools North and South both have longstanding orchestra programs.   In 1986 then Director Jane Gouker combined members of the two orchestras to form a unique traveling and performing ensemble known as the Hoosier Youth Philharmonic.  Since 1986 this award winning ensemble has performed across the US, and in Europe and Canada. Open to all North and South orchestra students, the HYP is perhaps best described as a family. While North and South students regularly compete in sports and academics, the orchestra students from these two schools perform, work and play together. Alumni and their parents regularly return to support the program that was their “family.”  Under the current direction of Jon Hansen, these students support each other, and represent their own schools, the HYP, and the Bloomington community in an exemplary fashion.
