Youth Ensembles

The BAM Youth Ensembles provide challenging experiences for the young and talented musician designed to enhance and supplement school instruction. Lead by acclaimed music educator and orchestra director, Mr. Philip M.

Participants will play, make new friends, experience guest conductors/clinicians and have fun!
