The Gift of Music

The Gift of Music is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1. Gifts will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia to the value of $50,000. Let your favourite music play on!

The SYO Music Library is a vital resource providing access for young musicians and community groups to quality orchestral scores and parts. By giving The Gift of Music, you are supporting SYO to purchase outright the music of some of the greatest orchestral and chamber works from the canon as well as investing in the ongoing management of the Library.

Your gift will ensure that your favourite works continue to be studied and performed, safeguarding the future of classical music in Australia.
