The SNYO programme is structured to cater to a range of ages and skill levels for a productive musical and social experience. Our two performing groups play challenging repertoire in regular concerts.
The Singapore National Youth Orchestra (SNYO) is for members who are ready to perform at a high level in an orchestral setting. Members of the SNYO will perform three concerts annually and are given opportunities to represent Singapore in various events such as overseas music festivals and exchange programmes.
The SNYO is led by Dr Leonard Tan, Principal Conductor, SNYO.
The Singapore National Youth Sinfonia (SNYS) is for members who will benefit from rehearsal and performance experience geared towards developing their ensemble and musicianship skills. SNYS members will perform two concerts annually along with enrichment activities throughout the year.
The SNYS is led by Mr Lin Juan, Assistant Conductor, SNYO.
The SNYO is a National Project of Excellence, and the Ministry of Education (MOE) recognises the SNYO as an official Co-Curricular Activity (CCA). If you are studying in a local school, your participation in our activities will count towards your CCA points. There will be opportunities for you to take on certain responsibilities during your time with the SNYO, such as joining the orchestra’s Student Committee, coordinating outreach projects, or being appointed as the section principal. These additional responsibilities will also be reflected in your CCA records.
