Welcome ...

We are OPEN for a new Conductor. 

Probably the best community youth orchestra in Australia. Are you inspired and up to the challenge? 

After 6 successful years and winning the Sydney Eisteddfod in 2014, 2015 and 2016, our Conductor Alex Pringle and KYO are now searching for his successor. 

If you are ready to take our young talents to the next level.

Expression of Interest is now open. Audition and interview in April/May 2018. Engagement term is July 2018 to Dec 2020 with rehearsals every Thursday evening during term time and 4 Sunday concerts a year.

Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to find out more.

We are pleased to announce that Carlo Antonioli is conducting KYO for Term 1 and Term 2 of 2018.
 
Carlo is no stranger to KYO for he had been standing in for Alex in many rehearsals, conducted our Sep 2015 concert including this fantastic encore of William Tell Finale <Youtube>.  Carlo has recently done his Master degree in conducting at Sydney Conservatorium of Music.   He was recently selected by the Tasmania Symphony Orchestra's Australian Conducting Academy and featured at ABC Classic FM.  We are excited with his ideas and believe you will love what Carlo has planned for the April and July concerts.

The aim of KYO is to provide local school and tertiary students with the experience of performing classical and contemporary orchestral music. The orchestra will be working on a range of music at rehearsals with the intention of performing in public concerts.

 

Rehearsals are held in the Ku-ring-gai Town Hall in Pymble on Thursday nights (school term time only) from 6.30 - 8.30pm.  <Google Map>
