Our 2019 Tour of Possibility to Brazil is quickly approaching!
Each year the BPYO contributes significantly to cultural diplomacy and the international musical landscape by performing for audiences and interacting with young people in other parts of the world. Audiences and critics alike praise the skill, depth, and artistry of our young musicians as they forge new global networks through music.
These tours empower young musicians by providing invaluable educational and artistic experiences and the opportunity to perform orchestral masterworks in diverse venues. Youth orchestra members will learn to work together in a variety of challenging settings and become leaders in their communities. During this tour, BPYO members will also serve as creative ambassadors, creating meaningful connections with young Brazilian musicians through a series of collaborations and outreach events that will illuminate music's unique ability to impact social change. We are indeed living up to our motto of "shaping future leaders through music."
Our tuition-free orchestra, as well as this once-in-a-lifetime tour, have high costs. In order to meet our artistic goals, we need to meet our financial goals. We need your help in making this a reality. Please help us make our dream, and the dreams of our many young players, come to life by donating to spread our vision of "possibility" through our music!
Risks and challenges
Plans for the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra tour to Brazil are in the final stages. There are always challenges associated with traveling internationally with a large group, but we are confident that we will be able to overcome the hurdles that arise. Our artistic and administrative teams have led many successful international orchestra tours over the years and are thrilled to bring that expertise to the BPYO’s sixth international tour.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
