Mt. Baker Youth Symphony, Bellingham WA
Mt. Baker Youth Symphony (MBYS) provides a wholesome and stimulating environment for talented and hard-working young musicians. Emphasis is placed on an atmosphere that encourages, challenges and develops their fullest potential in the art of musical 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.
