Bettine Zimmermann, CYSA Orchestra Manager and Lead Elementary Strings Teacher
I grew up in Tigard and started playing violin when I was five. Throughout my childhood, I performed in the Metropolitan Youth Symphony and Portland Youth Philharmonic. I loved attending summer camps and spending time with other musicians. Upon finishing high school, I decided to become a music educator. I graduated from Oregon State University in June 2021 with bachelor and master’s degrees in Music Education. In my free time, I enjoy performing with orchestras and chamber groups, teaching private violin lessons, and spending time with my family. I am excited for the upcoming CYS season!
