Congratulations to our stellar MBYS violin crew who appeared onstage with THE PIANO GUYS at Mt. Baker Theatre on October 5!! GREAT JOB, violinists! Very much enjoyed by the audience-you made us proud! Many thanks to THE PIANO GUYS for their welcoming, kind, and encouraging treatment of our musicians.

Mount Baker Youth Symphony (MBYS) provides a wholesome,stimulating environment for talented and motivated young musicians. We cultivate an educational approach which encourages, challenges, and develops young musicians’ potential in the art of musical performance.

Participants benefit from a year-long program designed to spark their enjoyment of music and develop their musical skills and self-confidence. In addition to full rehearsals, our professional coaching staff provides specific instruction for the instrumental groups within each ensemble. Performances include full- orchestra concerts, which often include featured soloists from the orchestra, and a large collaborative concert with Fidalgo Youth Symphony in March.

Styles are not limited to classical music, though it is the foundation of instrumental skill. Jazz, fiddle, folk, Broadway, movie music, and ethnic styles are seasonal favorites! We aim to enrich the lives of families with music participation meaningful to them. Requests for musical selections are encouraged.

New members may join the first rehearsal after any concerts
