Second part of this course will be the Minnesota Orchestra Immersion Experience in Gauteng from 14-19 August where the National Youth Orchestra will do side-by-side rehearsals with Osmo Vanska conducting, play chamber music, have master classes and get to find out what it’s like to play in one of the world’s best orchestras.

The SA National Youth Orchestra’s study pathway really works. More than 70% of South African musicians working in South African orchestras are SANYO alumni. Our alumni are also members of some of the finest professional orchestras worldwide.
The program encompasses all aspects of the preparation and rehearsal of full-scale symphonic orchestra repertoire in the National Youth Orchestra. The culminating concerts are sure to bring the house down, and the buzz of it will stay with you forever.
