The Symphonic Wind Orchestra (SWO) provides the perfect training and performance environment for over 70 young wind, brass and percussion musicians from across NSW. They explore a diverse range of repertoire from popular 20th Century film scores and jazz standards through to core orchestral repertoire. Through large scale public performances, regional tours and intensive rehearsals and tutorials, the Symphonic Wind Orchestra is a fantastic opportunity for young wind, brass and percussion players to develop their ensemble skills, musicality and technique.
The Symphonic Wind Orchestra falls under the baton of James Pensini (SYO Alumni).
