The Western Australian Youth Orchestras Association Inc. (formerly the Western Australian Youth Music Association) is a non-profit community Association dedicated to musical excellence.
Since being founded in 1974, WAYO has grown to now offer several ensembles, which include the Western Australian Youth Orchestra, Philharmonic Orchestra, Flute Choir, Camerata Orchestra, and Collegium & Sinfonietta String Orchestras.
WA Youth Orchestras’ over 400 members are aged from 7 to 25 and are drawn from all parts of Western Australia. The Association regularly reaches live audiences in excess of 30,000 per annum through a variety of performances – from prestigious international conductor seasons at the Perth Concert Hall to relaxed outdoor family concerts to interactive educational concerts for kids.
We look forward to celebrating 50 years of WAYO in 2024!
