Support this worthwhile organisation which is encouraging and challenging young people to aspire to excellence. These young musicians have already put in years of disciplined practice to achieve their individual performance standards. When they come together as an orchestra the results are thrilling!

Every dollar we receive is carefully stewarded to help achieve our vision each year.

Your donation goes towards the regular operating costs of hiring rehearsal and concert venues, transport, storage and professional tutoring. Every donation makes a difference!

All donations are most gratefully received. AYO is a Registered Charity and is an IRD-Approved Donee Organisation. A tax receipt will be automatically issued on receipt of your donation.

More about us

AYO is the premier regional youth orchestra in New Zealand. Founded in 1948, it is designed to bridge the gap between school orchestras and adult professional groups.

More than 2,600 young adults from diverse cultural and social backgrounds have passed through the ranks of the orchestra, having received expert training in orchestral playing. No other orchestral organisation or institution in New Zealand provides such a comprehensive programme to musicians between the ages of 15 and 26.

What a great programme! We'd love to be there in person to hear it, but we're no longer Auckland-based. Very best wishes, and keep up the fine tradition. Diana Gash and Paul Robertson
