Mt. Baker Youth Symphony, Bellingham WA
Mt. Baker Youth Symphony (MBYS) provides a wholesome and stimulating environment for talented and gifted young musicians. An emphasis is placed on creating an atmosphere that encourages, challenges and develops their fullest potential in the art of performance.
Participants benefit from a year-long youth symphony program designed to nurture their enjoyment of music as well as develop their musical skills and self-confidence. In addition to full rehearsals, a gifted professional coaching staff provides specific instruction for the instrumental groups within each ensemble. Performances throughout the season include full orchestra concerts as well as small ensemble opportunities.
Our styles are not limited to classical music only. We incorporate jazz, fiddle, folk, Broadway, movie music, and ethnic styles. We aim to enrich the lives of families with music participation which is meaningful to them.
