Western Sydney Youth Orchestra

Western Sydney Youth Orchestra (WSYO) is a thriving youth orchestra that extends the reach of orchestral training to musicians in the Western Sydney. Since its inception in 2017, WSYO has grown into a strong and versatile orchestra, often collaborating with other artistic companies and cultural groups. They also perform at a range of unique events and festivals, further enriching the artistic education and performance experience of our young musicians. They are exposed to a wide range of repertoire including Baroque, Romantic, Film and Contemporary Music.

This orchestra has been made possible through the support of Founding Partners Dixon Advisory. By joining WSYO, young musicians from Western Sydney will connect with over 550 other talented young people and become part of the SYO family.

The Western Sydney Youth Orchestra falls under the baton of James Pensini (SYO Alumni).

“Being given the opportunity to lead and play with WSYO has been an amazing experience. The opportunity to bring instrumental music to Western Sydney and access to players has help broaden my own playing. I look forward to rehearsals each week and working with our conductor, tutorials with professional players and the best part getting together with awesome players who like me want to play and perform music. Everyone at WSYO leaves me feeling enthusiastic and encouraged to keep playing.” –James
