WA Youth Orchestras is a non-profit registered charity providing unparalleled orchestral training and performance opportunities for young Western Australians and our audiences. Since 1974, WAYO has been committed to the long-term investment of engaging and enriching the lives of WA’s youth through music.
Our family of orchestras, ensembles and initiatives build a supportive community environment encouraging self-esteem, discipline, teamwork, leadership and performance skills to develop and flourish. Our programs highlight works of historical, educational and cultural value, creating an experience for our members that nurtures their creative education whilst being representative of the community and culture they exist within. WAYO is one of Australia’s leading and most comprehensive youth orchestra programs, with over 400 members drawn from 137 suburbs in Perth, South West WA and beyond.
