The Big Busk 2020


The Big Busk is Australia’s only public celebration of youth and orchestral music, and it’s coming on Thursday October 8th 2020!

The success of the event over the past 2 years has seen has secured its position as a  highlight in Sydney’s October calendar.  In 2019, nearly 600 musicians and alumni from SYO brought Sydney to life with 10-hours of consecutive live performances.

From soloists to quartets, wind ensembles to a full 70-piece philharmonic, The Big Busk connects Sydney siders through the emotion of music – everything from Beethoven to Billie Eilish.

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