Give the Gift of Music

Sydney Youth Orchestras’ ensembles and orchestras perform over 70 pieces of music a year costing over $30,000 for purchase and hire.

Each piece of music added to the SYO Music Library allows us to play that music at no additional cost and provides a shared resource for musicians and community groups.

Please help us safeguard the future of classical music in Australia by providing young musicians access to quality musical scores and parts.
