2019 AYO International Tour
Concert Schedule 

The 2019 AYO International Tour will see young musicians journey across Europe, China and Australia in a whirlwind month of performances. The orchestra will spend two weeks in the Netherlands completing an immersive residency at Akoesticum in Ede, before embarking on a concert tour of prestigious venues and festivals in Germany, France, the Netherlands, China and Australia. We’re delighted to be performing in Beijing and Guangzhou, as 2019 also marks the 40th anniversary of the 1979 tour, when AYO became the first Australian orchestra to perform in China.

Find out where to hear them along the way!
