Richard Bonynge Ensemble (RBE)

Established in 2021 with the goal to enrich the community through music, Richard Bonynge Ensemble (RBE) is an elite ensemble comprising some of the finest young talents from Penrith Conservatorium of Music and Penrith Youth Orchestra.

The Ensemble provides an opportunity for serious and skilled early-career musicians to work with industry professionals through workshops and mentoring sessions, and collaboration with professional chamber ensembles to develop solid performance and musicianship skills.

Bringing together experienced musicians and mentors with young, talented instrumentalists, the ensemble strives to create its own distinctive style and culture.

The Ensemble performs a wide variety of repertoire, from well-known pieces, long forgotten pieces that deserve revival as well as new works from local emerging composers.

Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO)

Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO) is the evolution of the highly successful Penrith Strings ensemble that was established in 2015 by the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), Penrith Symphony Orchestra (PSO), and Penrith Conservatorium of Music at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre. In 2018 PYO was launched to expand orchestral skills training and performance opportunities for young musicians in Western Sydney.
