2020 Calendar

PYO in 2020

Rehearsals, workshops and performance are typically held on three weekends in each school term.

In 2020, PYO begins with a three-day intensive orchestral academy led by ACO musicians on 21-23 February, which will include a public concert performance by the students alongside their professional mentor.

Music will be available at least three weeks before the start of each term’s project. Students are expected to familiar with the repertoire before the first rehearsal. Students are expected to attend all rehearsals and performances unless otherwise approved by the Penrith Youth Orchestra Administrator.


To be considered for this program, students must be able to commit to the following dates:
