NZSO NATIONAL YOUTH ORCHESTRA

The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is committed to the development of New Zealand’s young orchestral musicians through the NZSO National Youth Orchestra.

Since its inception in 1959, the National Youth Orchestra has played a vital role in providing unique opportunities for the country’s most gifted young orchestral performers, many of whom have gone on to forge successful careers as orchestral players, soloists, chamber musicians and teachers. Approximately 50% of the current players in the NZSO are former members of the NZSO National Youth Orchestra.
