Summer Music

BYSO Summer Camp

At Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra summer camp, you’ll study your instrument with professional musicians, learn new skills, and prepare a great last-day concert, all in a fun relaxed summer setting. You’ll meet lots of other musicians and leave even more inspired about music!

BYSO offers three camp sessions, each specialized for different musicianship levels. All students will rehearse in an orchestra, play in a small ensemble with their own professional coach, get specialized instruction for their instrument, and enjoy fun music workshops to improve musical skills and understanding. Favorite electives in the past have included chimes, world drumming, theory with ukulele, and sight reading.

Students will bring their instrument and a lunch. BYSO will provide a mid-morning snack. On Friday, there will be a free concert involving all camp participants – family and friends are all invited.

Tuition includes all instruction, one daily snack, camp T-shirt, water bottle, and music folder. Financial aid and sibling discounts are available.
