Finale picnic concert near the Band Rotunda – bring a blanket and enjoy a diverse program of orchestral and choral music from a host of talented young musicians.

Regional Youth Orchestra NSW (RYO NSW) showcases youth from the seventeen Regional Conservatoriums based in country towns across the state. These young musicians have performed at the Sydney Opera House and have been mentored by world-class conductors and players from the Australian World Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra. RYO NSW is an initiative of the Association of NSW Regional Conservatoriums and is hosted in Dubbo by Macquarie Conservatorium.

This free family concert features classical favourites, themes from the movies and iconic music by Australian composers, conducted by Patrick Brennan, Director of Central Coast Conservatorium, and Graham Sattler, Executive Director of Mitchell Conservatorium, along with special guests Moorambilla Voices, conducted by their artistic director Michelle Leonard.

The Moorambilla Voices program provides a rare and valuable opportunity to connect with music-making of the highest calibre in collaboration with some of Australia’s finest composers, musicians, choreographers and regional artists. This award-winning program engages over 300 children during the year from all over north west NSW.
