The mission of Bay Area Youth Symphony (“BAYS”) is to enrich the musical education of talented young artists by providing them the opportunity to perform with their peers in a high level musical ensemble environment.
Our ambition is to provide the students of our communities a unique opportunity to reinforce and build upon their school musical curriculum while gaining the benefits of involvement in a youth organization. We strive to foster musical excellence in our students through a friendly environment that provides fertile ground for their appreciation and love for music to blossom.
BAYS is a 501(c) non-profit corporation in which the members are the parents, while the young musicians themselves are enrolled as students. If your young musician is not already a BAYS student, we welcome him or her to audition.
