Each orchestra has an important story to tell. Regardless of background, GYO believes in bringing out the best of each orchestra through enriching masterclasses, sectionals, and immersion with local and regional friends. GYO places improvement at the forefront, and values continual progress. Through this festival, we hope orchestras can shine through in their ability to learn and display outstanding performances, by being a better version of themselves than before. As a whole, GYO symbolises our wish for mutual growth and support between musicians.
