AYO Young Symphonists

Presented by the Australian Youth Orchestra, join AYO Young Symphonists as they discover the wonder of Russian orchestral masterpieces under the baton of Roger Benedict.

Audiences will be treated to Borodin’s symphonic poem In the Steppes of Central Asia, and Khachaturian’s vibrant Spartacus Suite No.2. Enjoy the contrast between the opening Adagio, with its long sweeping melodies; alongside the flourishes of dance music in the closing scenes.

As the concert draws to a close, witness the country’s best young musical talent display their outstanding technical prowess in Tchaikovsky’s defiant Manfred Symphony.

AYO Young Symphonists has become one of AYO’s pivotal pathways in the development of young instrumentalists aged 12-17 years. This program provides young musicians with the opportunity to ignite their musical imagination and perform exhilarating classical works for a live audience.

The concert is free admission, but guests must register for tickets in order to attend. Booking fee applies.
