Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO)

AYO Appeal

Each year AYO attracts the finest conductors, tutors and guest artists from around the world to ignite a thirst for musical knowledge, fire young musicians’ imaginations and inspire them to unleash their creative power.

Recent highlights have included standing ovations for the Porter Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Belinda McFarlane at National Music Camp, the electric atmosphere as Tobias Lea tutored the orchestra through their first rehearsal during our 2016 International Tour and guest artist Li-Wei Qin’s heartfelt connection with our musicians during AYO’s 60th Anniversary Concert.

Our goal this year is to raise $60,000 by 30 June – to support the engagement of over 100 tutors and artists from across the globe to immerse our young musicians in over 1,000 hours of invaluable mentorship throughout a range of programs in 2017.
