Sydney Youth Orchestras has a long history of delivering activity across various parts of NSW. SYO State is an outreach project designed to increase participation and engagement in orchestra music across New South Wales. This program focuses our outreach activity the Central West with our main orchestral hub in Dubbo and residencies in the South Coast and Hunter regions of NSW. Through this program, we aim to identify and nurture talented young musicians and establishing stronger community engagement and relationships. Since 2016, we have focused on the City of Dubbo and establishing the town as SYO’s hub for the Central West, with a 3-year initial commitment to providing community events and concerts in the Central West region.
The Sydney Youth Orchestra was founded as a single orchestra in 1973 by the visionary music educator and conductor, Peter Seymour. Over 43 years it has grown to become a community of over 500 young musicians, aged 6-24, from all over Sydney and beyond. We gather weekly for rehearsal in the city and now in Western Sydney, in thirteen different ensembles carefully constructed to match skill, age and experience.
