This past weekend’s tremendous performances at our Fall Concert Series marked the conclusion of BYSO’s 2023 Fall Quarter. Rehearsals will start back up again on January 8, 2024. Winter Quarter tuition payment emails will be sent out towards the end of November. We are already counting down the days until we get to make music with all of our students again!
Tickets are now on sale for BYSO’s Fall Concert Series! Our 9 ensembles will be featured across 4 concerts on November 18 & 19 at Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Center Theatre. For more information CLICK HERE!
Our first rehearsals of our 2023/24 Season are this evening! Make sure to check your ensemble page for the most current information regarding rehearsal locations and time blocks. Music links with instructions on what to print and bring to rehearsal were sent out via the newsletter this past Thursday. See tonight!
We are thrilled that our first rehearsal night of our 2023/24 Season is just around the corner. Make sure to check your Ensemble Page to review your rehearsal location and start time!
Ensemble placements have been released. An email was sent to the primary email address for each student that auditioned from firstname.lastname@example.org (this is usually a parent or guardian’s email address). The email sent contains the student’s audition result and, if placed and offered a spot in an ensemble, a individualized tuition payment link. If you did not receive this email, please check your junk email folder. If you still cannot find it, please email email@example.com to request a resend of the placement email. Thank you to all of the students who expressed interest in joining BYSO this season. We were blown away by your auditions!
