The Intensive Community Program (ICP), directed by Nicole Cariglia is a rigorous instrumental training program within the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (BYSO) that brings quality classical music instruction to students from communities traditionally underrepresented in the classical music field by providing lessons, instruments, and need-based financial aid. After two to three years of rigorous study, ICP students are typically prepared to audition into one of the BYSO's orchestras and are eventually expected to progress into the Boston Youth Symphony, BYSO's premier ensemble. Through discipline and creativity, individuality and teamwork, students will accomplish personal and group goals. The results are young people who develop high aspirations and love to work hard towards excellence.
