Welcome to Gold Coast Youth Orchestra

Gold Coast Youth Orchestra (GCYO) is a regional orchestra in Australia with five ensembles (Youth Symphony, Junior Symphony, String Orchestra, Big Band and Little Big Band) that cater to over 200 musicians aged between 8 and 25.

Established in 1969, GCYO is committed to the importance of music as an essential component in the social and cultural fibre of society. We serve this commitment by providing orchestral and ensemble performance experiences for children and young adults.

Gold Coast Youth Orchestras promotes commitment, team work, and determination! We also provide a caring and supportive environment while showing students the many benefits music can offer!

Gold Coast Youth Orchestra would like to thank the City of Gold Coast for the COVID-19 Community grant payment(s). This support has meant we have been able to maintain our building and facilities during this challenging time.
