ABOUT NYO CANADA: For over six decades NYO Canada has enjoyed an iconic reputation as this nation’s pre-eminent pre-professional orchestral training institute, providing an essential bridge to the profession for Canada’s finest young musicians aged 16 to 28. Every year, up to 100 of the best and brightest are selected to participate in an intensive 5-week residential training institute mentored by a world-renowned faculty of professional musicians and educators, followed by a national tour under the baton of a world-leading conductor.

Our tuition-free training program, which runs from June to July, provides our students with more hours of practical orchestral training in one summer than most university programs offer in one year. NYO Canada’s vision is to launch Canada’s next generation of professional orchestral musicians by offering a comprehensive program that encompasses a full range of skills and experiences. Additionally, each member of the orchestra receives a personal scholarship generously provided by our sponsors and donors.

The National Youth Orchestra of Canada is grateful for the support of the Government of Canada and its many donors who support its 2024 training institute and tour.
