WELCOME OBJECTIVES OF THE ERYO MEET OUR MEMBERS

This is the home of the East Rand Youth Orchestra. This orchestra aims to introduce the public to orchestral music and to allow children to enjoy themselves whilst entertaining and educating others.

Please visit a while and get to know us. Read our history and check out the members in the gallery.

To get involved, view the sponsorship information. There are interesting articles to read, and news about our performances and upcoming events.

The objectives of the ERYO focus completely on our youth, tomorrow's leaders. They aim:

  • To provide promising young musicians from all cultural backgrounds the opportunity of interacting whilst developing their musical skills in an orchestral environment.
  • To build and nurture interest and love for symphonic music.
  • To sustain the classical music heritage by preparing musicians for senior and/or professional orchestras in order to enable them to follow musical careers.
  • To culturally enhance all communities with entertaining concerts.
  • To provide scholarships for disadvantaged children to join the orchestra and to receive music lessons to enhance their musical talents.
