Minyan or Music

The Rav Name:

I am over Bar Mitzvah and value davening with a minyan. I play a couple of musical instruments because my parents want me to. I just found out that my parents want to sign me up to a non Jewish orchestra once every night. If I go, I will miss Mincha/Marriv with a Minyan. As long as my parents don’t lose money do I have to listen to them or let them sign me up?
