Congratulations to the Brighton High School and Twelve Corners Middle School musicians who were selected for the 2019-20 Hochstein Youth Symphony Orchestra. The BHS selections were: Eliana Alweis, Henry Berger, Lizzy Bernold, Anna Couch, Madeline Couch, Sara Kotz, Hayden Lieb, Leah Rosen, and Olivia Rosen. The lone TCMS selection was Joanna Frank. HYSO is the highest-level youth orchestra in the Hochstein’s four-tier youth orchestra program.

Students compete annually for a seat in the orchestra, performing professional repertoire in at least four concerts throughout the school year. This season, there are students from 27 different schools coming together every Saturday morning for an accelerated musical experience. Since 2000, the HYSO has performed in cities in Spain, Portugal, Austria, France, Germany, Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, and Ireland. The orchestra will tour in Germany and the Czech Republic in the spring.
