Bassist Bianca Wilson Selected For National Youth Orchestra Program

Posted

Broadneck High School junior Bianca Wilson has been honing her skills as a member of the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) since 2015, and she will soon perform alongside musicians from across the country as a member of Carnegie Hall's National Youth Orchestra program in New York.

Wilson will join talented musicians ages 14-19 during a month-long residency this summer. Over the years, she has played in several school ensembles such as the orchestra, marching band, marimba band and chamber orchestra. Additionally, Wilson has played with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) in the Anne Arundel County Public Schools/BSO side-by-side orchestra, and she has been accepted into the Maryland All-State orchestra twice. Wilson currently enjoys leading digital tutoring sessions in music theory and violin.

Her favorite memory in CYSO was traveling to Carnegie Hall in 2019 and playing Christmas music alongside the stars of Tim Janis’ Christmas concert. Outside of music, she enjoys riding her bike, playing chess and learning how to code in JavaScript.

Although she initially chose bass because it was big and looked fun to play, Wilson now enjoys the instrument because she loves that it has a wide range and it can be played in a variety of musical genres.
