"...attracts highly-motivated and talented young students and performs high-level orchestral repertoire."
The Bakersfield Youth Symphony Orchestra remains an affiliated group of the Bakersfield Symphony, operating under its board of directors with able assistance from manager Brent Williams. It is comprised of students ranging in age from seventh grade through their first year of undergraduate college. This audition-only ensemble attracts highly-motivated and talented young students and performs high-level orchestral repertoire. Under the musical direction of Maxim Eshkenazy, the Bakersfield Youth Symphony Orchestra performs three concerts per year.
All rehearsals and concerts are currently suspended due to the growing threat of the COVID-19 disease. Please refer to this website or the Facebook page for updated information. We are looking forward to next season.
