SYO State is designed to increase participation and access to orchestral music across NSW.
This strategic commitment to reaching across NSW and extend SYO programs to reach all young musicians is now in its fourth year and consists of:
• Orchestral playing workshops and experiences located in SYO State Hubs
• Scholarships for all regional musicians when selected for the weekly Sydney-based programs
• Flexible attendance programs when selected for the weekly Sydney-based programs
• Summer School fee, travel and accommodation scholarships
SYO musicians also perform concerts with and for regional communities and schools building a rich cultural connection.
All regional and rural musicians are invited to register for workshops by completing an Expression of Interest form
Since 2015, SYO has worked to provide Regional NSW musicians with an opportunity to receive regular high-level orchestral training with our orchestras in Sydney. By building a tailored rehearsal schedule in consultation with the regional student, SYO endeavours to create access to high-quality training with options including flexible attendance plans and adjusted contribution payments. If you live 200km or more away from Sydney you automatically qualify for a regional scholarship and are eligible for further scholarships. If you are interested in becoming an SYO Regional Member, contact us on 02 9251 2422 or at email@example.com and our orchestral management team will be in touch.
Sydney Youth Orchestras would like to acknowledge the following partners for their assistance in making this program possible.
