Young Artist's Spotlight: Bakersfield Youth Symphony Orchestra String Players

Apr 5, 2017

On this week's Young Artist's Spotlight we feature string players from the Bakersfield Youth Symphony Orchestra. 

For three decades the Bakersfield Youth Symphony Orchestra has brought together music students in the south valley to perform high-caliber professional-level symphonic music. BYSO is an affiliated group of the Bakersfield Symphony, operating under its board of directors with able assistance from manager Brent Williams, parents, Symphony coaches, and private teachers. Funding is provided by corporate and private contributions, player tuition, and ticket sales.

Their next concert is June 17, 2017 Saturday at 4 p.m. at Ridgeview High School in Bakersfield. 

Bakersfield String Quartet:
Kayla Ko, Violin
