Side-by-Side Honors Symphony Program

The Side-by-Side Honors Symphony is a program offered to all high school students who are chosen by their teachers to play with the Butler County Symphony at the March 2nd Education Concert. Students will prepare a piece of music which will then be rehearsed with our Maestro and section leaders of the orchestra to prepare the students to perform “side by side” with members of the orchestra. Applications are available to teachers and must be submitted by January 15, 2024. Once the students are chosen, they will receive music and attend their first rehearsal with a guest conductor on February 6, 2024. They will attend 2 more rehearsals with the Orchestra the weekend of the Education Concert.
