The Australian Chamber Orchestra, The Joan and Penrith Symphony Orchestra are thrilled to present the third public performance by the Penrith Youth Orchestra (PYO), on Sunday 26 May at 3pm.

One performance only - Sunday 26 May 3pm!

The concert features music from Beethoven, Holst and Grieg, and is a sublime opportunity to witness the outcome of a long-term vision by its three founding partners to build musical and orchestral skills in young musicians in Western Sydney. The youth orchestra is supported by the Crown Resorts Foundation’s Western Sydney Arts Initiative.

From its beginnings as Penrith Strings in 2015, the Penrith Youth Orchestra program has been developing and showcasing talent in the Penrith, Western Sydney and Blue Mountains communities. The orchestra is currently comprised of some 55 young musicians across strings, percussion, brass and woodwind.

Catherine Sutcliffe, parent to a long-term PYO member, says she has been thoroughly impressed with the expert guidance and advice about the music, instrumental techniques and ensemble playing that has resulted in this extraordinary display of young musical talent;

“I have really valued the program as a wonderful opportunity to grow a strong music base in the Penrith region.  It is wonderful to see that programs like this can cater for students outside of the Sydney CBD. It is important for the region to continue to grow and develop the performing arts so that we can develop quality home-grown performers.”  

The Joan is proud to present this concert by the Penrith Youth Orchestra as the outcome of a unique musical partnership that blends creative practice and education together for blossoming musicians of Western Sydney and beyond.

Enjoy the extraordinary talents of Penrith’s own youth orchestra musicians as they are joined on stage by musicians from the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Penrith Symphony Orchestra on Sunday 26 May at 3pm.
