Objectives

The primary focus is young people from 12-25 years of age, and particularly 12-18 years.  LYO develops confidence in young people through musical education at Saturday rehearsals or in an open Summer School.  Some alumni have gone on to roles in major arts organisations.

Activities

LYO tries to be open access for young people who can sing, and develops their talent for drama, movement and singing.  Older members of the company are often students from local universities or graduates.  It performs two operas a year and holds a Summer School.  It creates an orchestra where young people can work with professionals.  It provides learning opportunities for young music and artistic directors and young people interested in theatrecraft.
