TYO rehearsals for 2020 start on Saturday 8 February for instrumental ensembles and Monday 16 March for chorales. Queries? Please get in touch.  

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. In 2020, TYO will be increasing its connections with young musicians statewise through additional scholarships and workshops, as well as providing extension opportunities to senior TYO players through professionally-led chamber programs.
