International Tour Sponsor
Every three years the AYO tours overseas. Performing in grand concert halls at renowned classical music festivals such as The Proms in London is one of the highlights of AYO musicians’ training experience. For many young musicians this is not only their first international tour but their first trip overseas, and a once in a life time opportunity.
As the title sponsor of the international tour, AYO will work with you to devise a bespoke sponsorship package offering a unique opportunity to experience the thrilling adventure of an overseas tour.
We are seeking $100,000 to sponsor the international tour.
Season Sponsor or Concert Partner
In addition to the AYO’s triennial international tour, twice a year approximately 90 young musicians tour as a symphony orchestra to two major Australian cities for the February and July Seasons. As Season Sponsor, or opening night Concert Partner, you will attract press and audience attention and also receive a diverse range of benefits.
Becoming the Season Sponsor or Concert Partner varies from $20,000 to $50,000.
In addition, it is possible to sponsor any of the AYO Study Pathway programs listed elsewhere on our website. Click here for more details.

There are three annual membership levels to choose from:
Con brio ($15,000)
Benefits include ‘best seat’ tickets, venue hospitality for your guests, and logo accreditation on specific AYO marketing publicity.
Sponsor a Young Musician
Sponsoring a young musician offers companies the prospect of enjoying a closer relationship with the AYO’s greatest assets - the musicians themselves. Providing a scholarship for one, or several, young musicians will enable them to do what they do best - play music - and not worry about how they will pay the fees to take part in an AYO program.
As a company providing a scholarship you will enjoy:
- the opportunity to meet and get to know your musician
- invitations to their rehearsals and performances
- branding opportunities and naming rights for major scholarships
Providing a scholarship for our musicians varies from $5,000 to $10,000 per year.
