BMYSO is dedicated to providing children through young adult college students with musical experience and benefits/rewards that will last a lifetime. The programs instill cooperation, discipline and patience, developing young musicians into appreciative listeners and participants.

Our mission is to provide young dedicated musicians the opportunity to develop advanced ensemble and performance skills that will enable them to grow to their fullest potential as musicians and performers, and in doing so enrich the community through the art of music performance.

We will model excellence in our interactions with students, families, the community, and each other by exemplifying these core values: dedication, professionalism, sensitivity, inclusiveness, passion, respect, and communication.

We currently have three ensembles in our program. Philharmonia is for string players with one year of training to intermediate level, Interlude is for the intermediate level string players, and Youth Symphony is for advanced high school through college level string, wind, and percussion players.
