Australian Chamber Orchestra

 

Penrith Conservatorium is proud to partner with the Australian Chamber Orchestra to administer Penrith Youth Orchestra. Musicians from the ACO are invited to be tutors for the sectionals of PYO’s participants and perform at PYO’s concerts and activities.

 

 

In February 2018, history was made for young musicians in Western Sydney when 44 students came together in the inaugural workshops of Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO).

The youth orchestra builds on the highly successful Penrith Strings program which ran from 2015 to 2017 through a partnership between Penrith Symphony Orchestra (PSO), The Joan, and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO). The PYO is the only youth orchestra that gives young musicians the opportunity to play on stage alongside professional musicians in their midst, as well as the opportunity to receive guidance from the musicians of the ACO.
