The Big Busk 2021


The Big Busk is BACK for 2021!

Australia’s only public celebration of youth and orchestral music, and it’s coming on Thursday September 23rd 2021!

The success of the event over the last 3 years has secured its position as a  highlight in Sydney’s spring 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.

Stay tuned for opportunities of how you can get involved: play an instrument, volunteer on the day or adopt an orchestra
