Bettine Zimmermann, CYSA Orchestra Manager
I am so excited to be working as the manager for CYSA! 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. I’ve been teaching in CYSA’s Elementary Strings program for the last two years and will continue my role with the Strings program as well. In my free time, I enjoy performing with orchestras and chamber groups, going on road trips, having game nights with family, and spending time at the beach!
