Fall Concerts – A Success!

We were blown away by the concerts this weekend. BYSO musicians took us on a listening adventure- from lively classical pieces to emotional African American spirituals. Your hard work and talent really are inspiring! Thank you to the music staff for being the best music staff around, the office staff, the Board, and our very willing volunteers. Also a big thank you to our season sponsor, Art of Problem Solving Academy. We cannot wait to get into the holiday season and celebrate our next concert on Dec. 2!

To see snapshots of the concert, view our Facebook page. Pictures will be posted soon and throughout the week!

Remember to order a concert video by Nov. 19 at the BYSO shop page.
