Your Annual Fund Gift Makes a Difference!
Your contribution supports artistic excellence, concert production, community outreach, tour support, and financial aid.
Our musicians interact with highly talented and committed artistic faculty, including conductors and professional coaches as well as renowned guest artists.
The BYSO offers its musicians performance opportunities in world class venues, such as Symphony Hall and Sanders Theatre at Harvard University. The total cost for producing sixteen performances a season is over $600,000.
The BYSO's Intensive Community Program (ICP), a rigorous stringed instrument training for underrepresented youth, has been cited by the National Endowment for the Arts as a model program. The total project budget for this program is $555,150.
Once accepted into the BYSO, no child is denied the opportunity to play in an orchestra based on financial difficulty. During the 2010-2011 Season, BYSO will provide financial aid to more than 20% of our families.
