In 2012 the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) and BYSO formed an important new partnership for classical music in Boston, “BYSO/BSO: Partnering for the Future.” This collaboration is designed to develop training programs and to offer joint performance opportunities for young musicians, audiences, and the wider community, while exploring innovative ways to continue to foster the future of classical music. In addition to the BSO Family Concerts, BYSO and BSO have collaborated to present new and unique family opera productions featuring musicians of the Boston Youth Symphony, members of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and vocal soloists which have included Mozart’s The Magic Flute (2014 and 2019) and Rossini’s Cinderella (April 2016).
