Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra

About SCYO

The SCYO is the Sunshine Coast community’s premier orchestra for youth, drawing talented musicians from across the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland into one or more of seven ensembles, covering novice to advanced, string ensembles to wind symphony, stage band and orchestra. Formed in 1989, the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra (SCYO) is a non-profit organisation that provides orchestral music opportunities for young musicians up to 23 years of age.

Warrior Legacy, performed by the Youth Symphony of the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra at Sydney Opera House, conducted by Chelsey Eunson, Sunday 7th August, 2014.

SCYO actively supports school music programs by extending musicians skills and encouraging all members to play in school music groups. Each year SCYO organises regular performances at a wide variety of venues, workshop activities with other orchestras, and an annual weekend music camp.


SCYO rehearses weekly on Wednesday nights during State school terms at Mountain Creek State High School. SCYO is managed by a volunteer parent group.
