Tasmanian Youth Orchestra

Enriching lives through music



Tasmanian Youth Orchestra (‘TYO’) delivers instrumental and choral education, development and performance programs in classical music to young Tasmanian musicians and singers aged five to 25. Last year around 200 young musicians and singers experienced the joys and challenges of rehearsing and performing classical music within a TYO ensemble. Together, they gave 22 performances to combined audiences of around 3500 people, delighting audiences around the state, collaborating with both professional and community ensembles and engaging with challenging, exciting repertoire. 


Your donation will ensure young Tasmanian musicians and singers can continue to access our programs throughout 2020 and beyond. TYO believes strongly that fees, while essential to our ability to deliver programs of exceptional quality, should not be a barrier to participation. As such, we offer significant financial assistance to many of our participants.

Your donation will also ensure also that we can continue to provide employment opportunities for the outstanding Tasmanian professionals who work with TYO as tutors, conductors and mentors. Many – in common with arts professionals everywhere – have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19 impacts. If you can assist with any level of donation, we would be most grateful for your support. Thank you.  


TYO welcomes young Tasmanian musicians and singers aged five to 25. We provide catered entry points for students of all levels across our tiered ensembles. Each ensemble is led by an accomplished team of conductors and tutors through weekly rehearsals in preparation for performances, recordings and collaborations.


TYO programs are about artistry and excellence, and nurturing resourceful, intelligent and resilient young adults who understand the relationship between endeavour and achievement. Through ensemble rehearsals and tutorials, students gain life-skills beyond their musicianship and instrumental and vocal technique. TYO fosters a sense of belonging and develops:

  • leadership and teamwork
  • communication
  • academic abilities
  • empathy and societal responsibility.

We thank you so much for considering a donation to TYO.
