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 lifelong love of music.

The TYO provides pathways for those new to ensemble playing, 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 is one of the oldest state youth orchestras in Australia.  Our alumni have gone on to develop professional and community music careers and we are passionate about fostering the next generation of musicians and audiences.
