Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra

The training orchestra for string musicians ages 7-18 on Bainbridge Island, BIYO provides students with the opportunity to perform orchestral music at a high degree of artistry while improving technical skills and fostering collaboration and community. Our four-tiered orchestra program allows students from beginner to advanced to benefit and grow from their involvement. We celebrate our performing artists with four annual free public concerts, collaborations with the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, an educational local school’s outreach program and festivals open to all area musicians. In order to increase access to music education, BIYO also sponsors an after school program for elementary-aged children to learn to play the violin, viola, or cello. Thank you for your support.
