The Big Busk

The Big Busk is Australia’s only public celebration of youth and orchestral music.

The success of the 2018 activation has seen it secured as a regular event in Sydney’s October calendar. In 2019, nearly 600 musicians and alumni from the SYO will bring Sydney to life with 10-hours of live performance. From soloists to quartets, wind ensembles to a full 70-piece philharmonic, The Big Busk will connect Sydney siders through the emotion of music – everything from Beethoven to Billie Eilish.

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