Penrith Youth Orchestra
In February 2018, history was made for young musicians in Western Sydney when 44 students came together in the inaugural workshops of Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO). The youth orchestra builds on the highly successful Penrith Strings program which ran from 2015 to 2017 through a partnership between Penrith Symphony Orchestra (PSO), The Joan, and the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO). For 2018, we have enrolled students in all sections of the orchestra.
The Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), The Joan and Penrith Symphony Orchestra (PSO) are thrilled to present a performance by the Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO) on Sunday 25 November.
Following the success of their inaugural performance in May 2018, the PYO will present a concert filled with orchestral and chamber music favourites, including music by Beethoven, Wagner, and Dvorak directed by conductor Paul Terracini. The concert will also feature a performance from the ACO Education Ensemble, who will perform works by Mozart and Piazzolla.
