Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra
Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra presents
A Free Community Concert
Performance: November 16
Sunday @ 4:00 p.m.
Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra’s free community fall concert at Bainbridge Performing Arts features two string ensembles: the Senior Orchestra, and the Sinfonietta. BIYO plays three concerts annually on Bainbridge Island, plus a side-by-side concert in the spring with the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, and a local public and private school outreach tour throughout the year. Given that orchestra classes are not part of the Bainbridge Island public school curriculum, BIYO serves a vital role in the community, presenting young musicians with the opportunity to learn ensemble skills that are essential to becoming advanced musicians. Performers, ranging in ages from 7 to 18, are led by Musical Director Wesley Schulz.
A non-profit 501 (c)3 local organization, BIYO encourages students to see the tremendous joy a musician can experience while working in camaraderie with others. The organization actively promotes cooperation and an understanding of the effects that joy and beauty can have on the world! Through study of orchestral music, students learn both the importance of striving for excellence, and the responsibilities of working in community with others.
