The Greater Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (GBYSO) celebrate their forty-seventh anniversary during the 2004-2005 season. GBYSO was founded in 1958 by Boston University and members of the musical community in Massachusetts, and continues in residence at the College of Fine Arts at Boston University.
GBYSO has grown from a single orchestra to include over 350 members in its Senior, Repertory, Junior Repertory, Preparatory String, and Intensive Community Program Orchestras. Members of the Senior and Repertory Orchestras can also participate in one of GBYSO’s three chamber orchestras: Sinfonietta, Camerata, and the Junior Repertory Chamber Orchestras.
Members travel from over a hundred communities throughout Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Vermont to rehearse every Sunday from September through June.
