For years the musicians of the BRSO have mentored young people in the Bavarian State Youth Orchestra (BLJO) or in joint projects. For more than 15 years it has lent its support to the BLJO in many kinds of sponsorships.

Besides joint working phases and concerts with its principal conductor Mariss Jansons (d. 2019) and various guest conductors, BRSO members have stood at the side of young musicians as teachers and mentors. Many of the young people are seriously interested in turning their passion for music into a profession, and most see an entirely new world unveiled while working with the pros. They discover how varied and multi-faceted the orchestral profession can be. The orchestra members serving as teachers in the BLJO used to play in youth orchestras themselves and want to pass down their valuable experiences.
