Some background information:

Musicians up to the age of 23 can audition for a place in the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra. Students travel from all over the Sunshine Coast and hinterland to play in SCYO - some even travel from Kilcoy each week! Selection to play in SCYO is the music equivalent to selection in a regional sporting team.
SCYO highlights include an annual weekend music camp, regular performances, workshops, weekly rehearsals and tutorials during school term. Playing challenging and exciting music, making new friends to share music with and going on camp or tour are the things many members say they enjoy most about SCYO.
Our three fantastic conductors - Clare Deady (Education Queensland Instrumental Music Teacher), Dr Andrew Paszkowski (local medical specialist and Viola teacher) and Steven Lake (Private School Instrumental Music Teacher) - are excellent role models for young musicians and dedicated to furthering musical education on the Sunshine Coast.
136 musicians aged between 6 and 21 years currently rehearse and perform with SCYO in four orchestral groups - String Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Orchestra and Senior String Orchestra.

We are a non-profit (and charity listed) extension of musical education on the coast. We aim to provide the best possible orchestral music experiences for kids right here on the coast - the only other youth orchestra experience on offer is Queensland Youth Orchestra which involves travelling to Brisbane on a weekly basis.
