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!
The Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras performed the season finale concert Sunday April 30th.
Concerto competition winners Michael Smith, violin, and Yifan Liu, clarinet, were featured with the Philharmonic and Symphony orchestras. Other pieces included March Slav, Schubert's First Symphony, and the world premiere of a new work for Wind Ensemble.
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!
