The Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra (BSYO) is open to talented student musicians in home, private or public schools who play stringed, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments.
Membership and placement are by audition only. Each player, including a returning musician from the previous year, is auditioned every year to ensure correct placement according to individual ability. Acceptance and placement decisions are at the sole discretion of the Artistic Staff and judges.
Upon acceptance to a BSYO ensemble, the musician and his/her parents/guardians are expected to make a serious and diligent commitment to that orchestra and to the organization.
Musicians are expected to attend weekly rehearsals, practice orchestra parts outside of rehearsal, and attend dress rehearsals and concerts as outlined in the organization’s schedule (published in August and modified as needed during the season). Musicians are expected to participate in their school music programs and are encouraged to study their instruments privately to maintain at least the level of competency demonstrated at the time of their audition and to continue their musical development.
Parents/guardians are expected to attend meetings of BSYO (annually), and are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents and participate in fundraising activities.
