We are very pleased to announce that Sydney Youth Wind Symphony, under the leadership of Musical Director Peter Eagling, has been awarded Gold at the Yamaha Band Festival. The ensemble held its inaugural rehearsal in February 2012 and this award is affirmation that it is meeting its aim of providing an opportunity for young, talented musicians to to produce music of the highest quality.
Sydney Youth Wind Symphony was founded to provide young musicians with the same opportunity that many of Sydney Wind Symphony’s musicians had whilst studying; namely the opportunity to learn from professional musicians and access to a broad and challenging repertoire in the company of like-minded students.The ensemble rehearses weekly during the school term and performs in concerts held at regular intervals throughout the year. It also holds an annual weekend workshop in early March and may compliment its activities with contests, festivals and concert tours. New members are always welcome.
