WYSO Music Makers Additional Opportunities

WYSO Mentors


Members of WYSO’s Youth and Philharmonia orchestras who are in high and play a stringed instrument are invited to volunteer as mentors in the WYSO Music Makers program. Mentors typically join WYSO Music Makers rehearsals on Saturdays following their own WYSO rehearsals.

WYSO Mentors are musical guides and role models providing teaching, inspiration and friendship to young WYSO Music Makers students. Common mentor activities include participating in group classes, introducing students to instruments, helping with homework, and more. Click here to submit an application.

Participation is limited due to space. WYSO Music Makers rehearse at Memorial United Church of Christ, at 5705 Lacy St. in Fitchburg. Regular Saturday attendance is encouraged.

Mentors may be asked to play on a WYSO Music Makers concert or with the WYSO Music Makers Honors ensemble on a WYSO Concert.
