The Maine Youth Orchestra

Originally the Brunswick Regional Youth Orchestra or BRYO, this organization was founded in 1972 with the help of the late Professor Robert Beckwith of Bowdoin College and an initial grant from the Maine State Commission for the Arts and Humanities. The Orchestra was Incorporated in 1974. The orchestra is designed to provide orchestral training for area students in grades 6 through 12, since most schools in the area did not--and still do not -- have orchestras.  In 2001 the orchestra relocated to Yarmouth High School and was renamed the Maine Youth Orchestra or MYO to better serve any student from the surrounding area. The orchestra has been rehearsing at Greely Middle School in Cumberland since 2012.

MYO students are encouraged to participate in their school music programs. This is a wonderful way in which students can contribute to their school community, and to repay the start in music they may have received there. MYO has been proud to support many students who have gone on to attend music schools such a Julliard, New England Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music and Oberlin Conservatory. Many of our alumni are professional musicians and teachers or amateur musicians with community symphonies.

Bangor Symphony Orchestra

The Bangor Symphony Youth Orchestras (BSYO), an education program of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra (BSO), gives qualified students ages 8 to 18 the opportunity to gain performance experience in an encouraging and motivating environment. The BSYO comprise students who are invited, following an audition, to join one of three ensembles: the Prelude String Orchestra, the Prelude Wind Ensemble, or the Philharmonic Orchestra. Program features and details are listed below.

The Prelude String Orchestra (Sascha Zaburdaeva, conductor) provides a solid foundation for younger string players seeking to gain experience in an ensemble setting. Students should possess a basic level of musicianship and will develop the skills necessary to play in a full orchestra. The Prelude String Orchestra will rehearse and perform its own repertoire, and will combine with the Prelude Wind Ensemble on occasion.
