Symphony Orchestra Auditions 


The Symphony Orchestra (BYSO) is for musicians who have demonstrated a proficiency on their instrument that will enable them to perform some of the greatest and most challenging literature. Students at this level are committed to a seriousness of purpose and demonstrate a professional level of preparedness for rehearsals and performances. Symphony Orchestra is comprised of string, wind, brass, and percussion students through Grade 12 and is our highest level of symphonic orchestral training. The Symphony Orchestra rehearses on Monday evenings at Norview High School from 6:30-9:00pm.
