Welcome to our 2017 Concert Season!

KeithCome join us on a journey with South Australia’s finest young musicians as we travel from the outback to  outer space. Share in the grandeur and majesty of the ‘King of Instruments’, the pipe organ and take an evocative stroll around Rome.

From the youngest member of Adelaide Youth Strings (AYS), through the Adelaide Youth Wind Orchestra (AdYWO) and Adelaide Youth Sinfonia (AdSI) to the  senior Adelaide Youth Orchestra (AdYO), our ensembles comprise talented young musicians with a real passion for music – practicing many hours at home, rehearsing and making great music to share with you. We are all extremely proud of them!

This year’s program features Australian works including Earth Cry by Sculthorpe, conjuring the sounds and spirit of the outback and Don Banks’ Nexus, a rarely performed special blend of jazz and classical. Great classics are included with Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony, Holst’s  ever popular Planets and Respighi’s colourful and evocative Pines of Rome. The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s virtuosic young principal trumpet player Owen Morris, will perform Joseph Haydn’s dazzling trumpet concerto and keeping youth to the fore, two young up and coming student soloists will also be featured in our Maestro series.

Special thanks go to our generous supporters including the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation, The Advertiser, Fisher Jeffries, the Klein Family Foundation, Alfred James and our many donors for their continuing and valuable contributions. Together with our extended family of parents and volunteers, they contribute to the ongoing success of our mission to provide talented young South Australian musicians with orchestral training, life skills and education in a safe, empowering and joyful environment.

Above all, we applaud our young musicians. I am sure that you will find inspiration and pleasure, as much in the energy, dedication and skill of our young musicians as in the music itself.
