In June this year SYO travelled to the Central West of NSW to present the first SYO State Program. This program focuses our outreach activity in both Western Sydney and the Central West of NSW for the next 3 years with the aim to identify and nurture talented young musicians and establishing stronger community engagement and relationships. Two SYO Senior Orchestras travelled to Dubbo to present concerts and workshops. View some photos of the weekend below.
In June 2016, Sydney Youth Orchestras coordinated and delivered the inaugural TangoOz: Australia-Argentina Emerging Artist Skills Development Project in Buenos Aires and Montevideo. This program included an intense period of bespoke masterclasses, lessons, performances, and cultural activities to both inform, enhance and advance the students’ learning and development. This Project provided not only a unique opportunity, but a gateway to develop international collaborations for the benefit of the broad and diverse musical community here in Sydney.
