Australian Youth Orchestra String Quartet
The Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO) has a well-earned reputation as one of the world’s most prestigious and innovative organisations for young pre-professional classical musicians. During the 2011 Castlemaine State Festival, the AYO will be conducting their AYO Ensemble in Residence, and producing a music program in response to this residency experience.
The AYO Ensemble in Residence will also include a mentorship of Castlemaine Secondary College musicians in collaboration with Richard Gill, the Music Director of Victorian Opera.
