Nurturing musical and personal excellence

Providing everyone the opportunity to grow

Developing the next generation of leaders

BYSO has acquired 235 Huntington Avenue, across from Symphony Hall. We renovated the existing building to address safety and accessibility and provide our children with the space and resources they need to grow and succeed. Our new home:

  • Establishes a permanent and accessible home for BYSO’s Intensive Community Program (ICP).
  • Provides additional rehearsal space for our growing orchestras.
  • Expands BYSO’s educational opportunities and weekday programming.
