The Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra was formed as a result of a successful Strings Program in Brevard County Public Schools. The School Board, in collaboration with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and Brevard Community College, recognized the need for the most talented string players, as well as the county’s most advanced band players, to have the opportunity to learn orchestral repertoire under the direction of a professional conductor.
Founded as a single orchestra in 1984 under Willem Bertsch, Brevard County’s finest young musicians continue to receive exemplary orchestral training.
Today, in its 39th performing season, the BSYO boasts three orchestras consisting of more than 150 talented young musicians in grades 1st-12th, representing forty public, private and home schools. Students audition each year for a seat in one of three ensembles: String Ensemble, Festivo Orchestra, or Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Rebecca Simons, Michelle Eggen, and Nick Eggen. Students must be a member of their school music program if their school has a music program. The BSYO is a close friend of the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, performing in side-by-side concerts at the King Center for the Performing Arts.
The BSYO is dedicated to providing talented young musicians with opportunities for personal and artistic growth through challenging rehearsal and performance experiences. In addition to making musical training available for young people, this vital arts organization serves the community by encouraging a greater understanding of and participation in orchestra music.
