  • Each orchestra rehearses weekly on Sunday afternoons at the Carver Center for Arts and Technology.
  • BSYO requires that all musicians take weekly private lessons on their instrument for the duration of the season.
  • BSYO strongly encourages all musicians to participate in their school music programs.
  • Each musician is assessed and annual tuition fee. Need-based financial aid and scholarships are available.
