***NEW FOR 2022-2023 SEASON***

The Marin Alsop Fellowship, made possible by the Baltimore Symphony Associates, will support young musicians from under-resourced communities in their musical studies by providing full scholarship BSYO tuition and a cash award of $300-500 for supporting expenses such as instrument lessons, rentals, music, and other musical needs. The intention is to support the participation of students of color (BIPOC) from under-resourced communities in the BSYO. The fellowship will be available annually to one or more students who qualify. More information can be found HERE.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The BSYO is comprised of three ensembles tailored to specific age groups and skill levels, offering each student individualized attention and a supportive, collaborative performance environment. 

  • 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 an annual tuition fee. Need-based financial aid and scholarships are available.
