Tasmanian Youth Orchestra

TYO's senior ensemble, providing exceptional development opportunities, outstanding performance experiences and inspirational leadership journeys. The accomplished young musicians in this orchestra range in age from 13 to 25 and represent some of Tasmania's finest young musical talent. Musicians in this orchestra have the opportunity to rehearse weekly with their musical peers and annually with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra through TSO's 'Big Rehearsal'.
