“I absolutely love teaching. Kids are wonderful, whenever and wherever. And I think I was just born always with an interest in the arts.  I mean, they were just things that meant something to me.”

--Bucky Bowman in March 2004                                       

“A life well lived, to the benefit and pleasure of all who knew him.”

The Springfield Youth Symphony is sponsored financially by the Springfield Public Schools and supported by The Friends of the Springfield Youth Symphony, a parent booster organization. Since its founding in 1957, the Springfield Youth Symphony has provided outstanding young musicians with an opportunity to study and perform the standard orchestral repertoire.
