For 40 years, WAYO has inspired young people to achieve excellence through a love of music, while also helping them develop skills of self esteem, discipline, teamwork, leadership and performance. As one of Australia’s leading and most comprehensive youth orchestra programs, with over 400 members from around Perth, South West WA and beyond, WAYO is committed to the long-term investment of helping our young musicians realize their potential and their dreams.
How we are run
Western Australian Youth Orchestras is a not-for-profit incorporated association and is directed by a volunteer board who meet bi-monthly. WAYO’s daily business is operated by a small and dedicated management team.
How we are funded
With less than 25% of our funding derived from government sources (the Department of Culture and the Arts), we rely on the generosity of our private and corporate supporters to help us continue providing excellent musical training and performance opportunities for young Western Australians.
How you can help
If you love music and want Australia’s future musicians to have the best training available, become part of the WAYO family and make a tangible difference to our work.
Involvement with WAYO is the start of a sustainable business relationship tailored to the needs and marketing aims of your business.
The support we have received and continue to receive, from Trusts and Foundations is vital to the work we do.
