Welcome to the BSYO!
I am very excited about our new season and continuing the BSYO’s journey as part of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s efforts to expand its reach artistically, musically and educationally.
During our inaugural season last year, in addition to performing concerts in two amazing venues, the orchestras worked under BSO Music Director Marin Alsop, coached with musicians of the BSO, and collaborated with the artists from the Heifetz Institute. This past June, we had record numbers of auditions and membership in our orchestras has grown significantly both in numbers and talent. The BSYO will now have a total student body of 205 which represents counties in both the state of Maryland and Pennsylvania.
In this second season, the BSYO will continue to be a cornerstone of BSO's education programs and provide wonderful concerts both at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and at the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology. In addition to these outstanding performances, students will again have the opportunity to collaborate with world-class artists, perform chamber music concerts at the Meyerhoff, and be given the opportunity to attend exclusive BSO events.
Please join me in celebrating our BSYO students, and I hope you enjoy this season of exciting music making!
BSYO Artistic Director
