We are excited to announce our 2025 return to international touring after a six-year hiatus. Over the course of one month, 100 young musicians and cultural ambassadors will work with legendary conductor David Robertson, as they prepare for performances in the great concert halls of the world from 6 July to 5 August 2025.
Since our first tour in 1970, international touring has been a hallmark program of AYO, exposing aspiring professional musicians to new possibilities on a global scale. The alumni this program go on to become Australia’s finest musicians, taking their places on the world stage.
“The international tour was incredibly formative for me as a musician – there were places that we performed in that I might not ever go to again. It opened my eyes to the whole world.”Diana Doherty
