Five Ensembles, Student Musicians from All Over Hampton Roads

Under the direction and guidance of many supportive music educators over the past 41 years, Bay Youth Orchestras has developed into one of the largest youth orchestra programs in the country. Offering five levels of ensemble training, BYOV gives student musicians the opportunity to learn and perform the world’s greatest orchestral literature.
