From July 2nd-16th, 2020, NSYO will take a 14-day European tour to Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna, and will be participating in the International Youth Music Festival followed by the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival. The festival attracts over 2000 young musicians from all over the world to compete in different sections and promises to be a great experience for our NSYO musicians.
The players attending the tour are drawn from Symphony, Winds and Sinfonia, will rehearse as a group throughout the first half of 2020 in preparation for their multiple performances in the different European cities.
To help with fundraising for the tour, some of our players enjoyed a few days of busking before school holidays at Hornsby Shopping Centre. The players attracted crowds with many taking photos or stopping to watch and donate. Thank you to Jane for arranging these sessions and to all the players involved with a wonderful performing experience for everyone.

Enrolment for the tour closes at the end of January 2020, so if you’re interested, please email  or Donna at
