Carmina Burana

Hear poetry set to music in this iconic piece played powerfully by the 100-piece GBYO orchestra accompanied by choir and soloists!

GBYO is serious about its mission to inspire and educate young musicians. Our holistic approach to music education means we challenge students at every stage of their music development while making sure they feel supported by their conductors and peers. GBYO’s young musicians develop their talents beyond what they possible and feel pride and joy in their accomplishments. Support GBYO with a donation and help us expand our reach to more musicians. Thank you!
