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 Youth Orchestra (YO) is for members who are ready to perform at a high level in an orchestral setting. Members of the YO will perform three concerts annually and are given opportunities to represent Singapore in various events such as overseas music festivals and exchange programmes. The YO is led by Principal Conductor, Dr Leonard Tan.
The Youth Sinfonia (YS) is for members who will benefit from rehearsal and performance experience geared towards developing their ensemble and musicianship skills. YS members will perform two concerts annually along with enrichment activities throughout the year. The YS is led by Assistant Conductor, Mr Lin Juan.
The SNYO is a National Project of Excellence, and the Ministry of Education (MOE) recognizes the SNYO as an official 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 serving as the principal player, contributing in the orchestra’s students’ committee, and coordinating outreach projects. These additional responsibilities will also be reflected in your CCA points.
