Thank You to our Supporters in 2017
Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra organising committee and the players of Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra and Shoalhaven Junior Strings would like to sincerely thank all our supporters in 2017. We could not run without your assistance and we thank you for your assistance, which helps us provide a high quality music education experience for the young musicians of the Shoalhaven area.
We wish you a peaceful and safe Christmas and look forward to seeing you at one of our concerts in 2018.
“I had been learning piano for 6 years when I started learning viola as a second instrument in 2017, encouraged by my teacher at the time. The scholarship has enabled me to continue taking lessons to improve my playing an to also join SYO.
Membership of the SYO has been excellent for my development as a musician. I have gained experience in playing in an ensemble, which is not easy to get as a pianist. I’ve also had a lot of fun rehearsing, performing and also learning from experienced musicians including our conductor and the Haydn Ensemble.”Luke Bowen, SYO Second Instrument Scholarship Recipient, Principal Viola
