Bergen Youth Orchestra explores not only standard orchestral repertoire such
as Beethoven, Brahms and Tschaikovsky Symphonies. It delves into unusual
works by less familiar composers such as Kabalevsky, Ives, and Milhaud.
Performances of several Mahler works have drawn a great deal of acclaim to the
BYO. The BYO has given much attention to the music of Shostakovitch, prompting
communication from the great composer thanking BYO for its devotion. The
BYO has commissioned music from several composers including Donald Erb.
