New youth orchestra concludes its first season

CAMBRIDGE — Born under storm clouds yet clearly thriving at the end of its first year, the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra gave its final local performance of the season on Wednesday in Sanders Theatre. Next month the ensemble, under the direction of Benjamin Zander, sets out on an ambitious five-concert tour of the Netherlands.

Claiming a slightly different niche than the other fine youth orchestras in town, BPYO draws advanced students all the way up through their undergraduate years, with roughly 40 percent of the ensemble in college (or conservatory) and 60 percent in high school.
