Tasmanian Youth Orchestra

Welcome to the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra. 

If you play strings, wind, brass, or percussion and enjoy creating music with others then you have come to the right place!

If you are a past TYO player you may like to join our Alumni and connect with other past TYO players.

If you enjoy live orchestral music played by passionate young Tasmanians, then check out our 2014 Timetable for latest listing of events.

The Tasmanian Youth Orchestra connects young Tasmanian musicians to some of the best musicians in Australia, providing orchestral experiences and inspirational leadership opportunities.

Our vision is to inspire, nurture and develop young Tasmanian musicians, to perform the very best they can and enjoy a life long love of music.

The TYO is available for new players just starting out playing in an ensemble for the first time, through to experienced players studying at the Conservatorium of Music.  Our youngest players are 8 years old.  We accept players of all ages up to 26 years old.

Founded in 1965, the Tasmanian Youth Orchestra will turn 50 years old in 2015.  This is a major milestone, that will be celebrated through a statewide concert series, Tasmanian compositions, and TYO Alumni guests.
