Welcome to the
Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras
The premier youth orchestra experience of Boulder and beyond
Audition for the 2017-2018 season of the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras!
Featuring three orchestras and a wind ensemble, GBYO is the premier youth orchestra experience in Boulder and beyond!
As a non-profit we depend on the support of our community to help us raise the funds for our programs. Our tuition and ticket sales provide only about half of the funds necessary to operate GBYO. We are asking you to support GBYO on Colorado Gives Day, December 5, 2017. Colorado Gives Day is statewide day of philanthropic online giving.
To donate, go to coloradogives.org and enter “GBYO”. You can schedule your donation today or choose to wait and donate on Colorado Gives Day itself, December 5. Either way, each donation will help GBYO earn a portion of the $1 million incentive fund.
Enjoy a meal at rehearsal! Get to know the people of GBYO!
Boulder’s Ali Baba Grill is catering chicken shawarma, baba ganouj, greek salad, and baklawa. Only $9/person. Gluten free options available.
GBYO is a non-profit organization and relies on the support of donors.
Your support makes a positive difference in the lives of gifted young musicians and the community they serve.
The GBYO Wind Ensemble and Symphony Strings performed at the Kennedy Center!
Tuesday March 28, 2017, at 6pm, the young musicians of GBYO performed on the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center during the SHIFT Festival. The Boulder Philharmonic has been specially selected for the this innaugural festival, and they invited GBYO!
We toured monuments and museums, saw the cherry blossoms in bloom around the Jefferson Memorial, met with Representative Jared Polis, toured the Capitol Building, sat in the Senate gallery, got a behind the scenes tour at the Library of Congress including the Stradivarius collection, and of course performed at the Lincoln Memorial and Kennedy Center!
