SYO Excellence Fund

SYO Excellence Fund

SYO has excellence in education for talented young musicians at the core of all we do, whether it is through providing access to world-class conductors, opportunities to perform professionally at respected venues, having access to Australian and international artists, or advancing the orchestral training framework.

We invite you to become a donor to the SYO Excellence Fund to help us achieve our goal of leading education.

There are several tiers available:

  • A gift of $25,000 covers the venue costs for a Sydney Youth Orchestra Concert;

  • A gift of $10,000 covers the cost for the SYO International Tour Orchestra to have access to conductors, soloists and masterclasses;

  • A gift of $7,500 covers the costs for SYO musician’s tutorial sessions with professional musicians from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra (SSO), the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO) and the Australian Opera Orchestra);

  • A gift of $5,000 covers the cost of an orchestra section masterclass with an international artist.


All donors will be recognised as SYO Education Champions for 12 months on our website, and in all concert programs. Donors can also have their gifts recognised in a specific way or under a different name.

“I doubt I would be where I am today if it were not for the Sydney Youth Orchestra.”
Richard Tognetti, Artistic Director, Australian Chamber Orchestra
