See the passion of our young musicians


The Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) is celebrating the 65th year of their national annual summer camp program this year. The camp features an intensive program to help shape the newest classical musicians in the nation. In its 65 year history it has become a vital part of the apprenticeship of our young musicians.

This year, 243 of the nation's brightest, young, classical musicians will flock to Adelaide to gather together for this right of passage. Music Director, Elizabeth Wallfisch, conductors, Bruno Weil and Fabian Russell and renowned tutors will provide specialised guidance and inspirational direction. It's a great opportunity for the youngsters to learn from the best.

The public will be treated to eight free concerts as the culmination of the camp program. The two week duration of which allows students to experience all the nitty gritty details that go into building a full-scale symphonic or chamber orchestra repertoire to performance standard.

The concerts will offer audiences the opportunity to see first hand the commitment, passion and excellence of these young musicians. It's a great way to complete the camp experience for the students and the fact that they're free will hopefully ensure that many people can enjoy them. There is no need to book. Each concert is at Elder Hall at The University of Adelaide.
