Sydney Youth Orchestras is the leading orchestral training organisation in NSW, forging dynamic relationships between young musicians and Australia’s leading music educators, conductors and performers. For 44 years SYO has been the engine room of excellence and produced some of Australia’s finest musicians and educators.
In 2017 SYO will provide weekly orchestral training for musicians aged 6 – 25 years across 12 ensembles, including the new Western Sydney Youth Orchestra. SYO’s Orchestral Training Framework ensures that musicians progress through the orchestras, developing individual and ensemble skills under the careful guidance of artistic staff. Beyond equipping our emerging artists for careers as professional musicians, our program teaches teamwork, discipline, dedication, leadership, and a commitment to excellence.
