Penrith Youth Orchestra
Professional orchestral training for young musicians in the heart of Western Sydney
The Australian Chamber Orchestra, The Joan and the Penrith Symphony Orchestra partner to deliver the Penrith Youth Orchestra Program to increase musical activity and engagement in the Penrith catchment.
Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO) was established in 2018, building on the success of the Penrith Strings Program, which the partner organisations established in 2015. The youth orchestra brings together school-aged musicians from the Penrith region to participate in regular rehearsals, workshops and performances. The feedback from both programs has been overwhelmingly positive.
The program provides students with a unique mix of opportunities to learn, rehearse and perform with professional artists and tutors.
