The concert takes place on Sunday, June 15, at 4 p.m. at the Sanders Theatre at Harvard University. 

The students from Sudbury are:

"Every Sunday for more than nine months, these young musicians have spent hours rehearsing together, sharing their love of music and disseminating this passion with audience members at concerts throughout the season," said Ern Keegan Ianni, director of Marketing and Public Relations. "BYSO pays special tribute to the 56 young students who will be performing their final concert with BYSO as they graduate from high school and continue their path in life."
