TYO has moved online!

Online, undaunted play on! On 16 March 2020, Tasmanian Youth Orchestra made the difficult decision to suspend all face-to-face TYO activity until further notice, in line with medical and government advice around COVID-19/coronavirus. But while our wonderful TYOers may be at home, the music hasn't stopped! 

The Tasmanian Youth Orchestra 2020 presents: Shostakovich 'at home'! Here at TYO we are so very proud of the commitment and resilience of these wonderful young musicians, who have played on – online and undaunted – throughout these last months and the trickiest of times. We are delighted to present this ‘at-home performance’ of the Shostakovich Ballet Suite No 1 IV, as our communities emerge from the shadow of coronavirus into a brighter time where we can once again make and enjoy music together, face to face. 

Why stop at one? TYO is proud to present our second 'iso-performance' – the Dvoƙák Slavonic Dance Opus 46 No 8, which certainly put everyone through their paces!

For the love of music

Tasmanian Youth Orchestra (or ‘TYO’) delivers classical music education, development and performance programs to young Tasmanian musicians and singers aged five to 25. Our vision is to inspire, nurture and develop young Tasmanians to perform to their very best and enjoy a lifelong love of music. 

Founded in 1965, the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra is one of the oldest state youth orchestras in Australia. TYO connects young Tasmanians to some of the best musicians in Australia and seeks to deliver a program of outstanding benefit. We provide pathways to professional careers, grow lifetime musicians and supporters of the arts; and encourage inspirational development and leadership journeys among the TYO family.  

TYO's program provides musical pathways for a wide range of participants – from those new to ensemble music, through to accomplished youth musicians who are already experienced performers. Our core ensembles have a range of entry points and include two symphony orchestras, a training string group, wind ensemble, percussion ensemble and two chorales.
