Queensland Youth Orchestras (QYO) provides outstanding orchestral experiences for musicians aged 8 to 25. In seven orchestras and ensembles, QYO members develop their musical skills in a nurturing environment alongside musicians of a similar age and standard.
Based at the historic Old Museum Building at Bowen Hills, QYO provides an annual program of rehearsals, tutorials, concerts, camps and tours. Concerts attract large audiences in venues that include the Old Museum Concert Hall and the QPAC Concert Hall. Weekly rehearsals are scheduled during school and university terms and some orchestras undertake day trips or local tours of two to seven days duration. QYS tours internationally once every four years.
