Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra Offers Summer Strings Workshop
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — The Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra (BSYO) is offering its annual Summer Strings Camp from June 9-13 at Suntree United Methodist Church, located at 7400 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne.
The camp is open to students ages 6-18, regardless of BSYO annual participation, and will be grouped based on their musical abilities. Abilities range from all-state and all-county participants, to beginning orchestra students who have completed a Level 1 Suzuki book and are able to read music.
The camp will feature Carey Moorman, musician with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, Orlando Philharmonic and String teacher at Satellite High School; Dr. Siliman, assistant principal cellist of the Brevard Symphony and orchestra director/ string teacher for the Brevard County School District for 21 years; and Paul Jackson, Orchestra Director at Astronaut High School and Madison Middle School in Titusville.

The Brevard Symphony Youth Orchestra is seeking music-related artwork to become the cover of its 2014-2015 season program.
This program will be distributed at our concerts to audiences of approximately 2,500 people and will be reproduced for other BSYO materials such as posters, brochures and compact disc covers.
