The Big Busk 2019

The Big Busk is Australia’s only public celebration of youth and orchestral music, and it’s coming on Thursday October 10th!

The success of the 2018 activation has seen it secured as a regular event in Sydney’s October calendar. In 2019, nearly 600 musicians and alumni from the SYO will bring Sydney to life with 10-hours of live performance. From soloists to quartets, wind ensembles to a full 70-piece philharmonic, The Big Busk will connect Sydney siders through the emotion of music – everything from Beethoven to Billie Eilish.

All money raised will support SYO’s critical business infrastructure, expand our music library, and help us to acquire new and used orchestral instruments.
