Our Young Ambassadors program is an opportunity for young people between the ages of 6 and 21 who want to share their curiosity and discoveries around live orchestral music.
Young Ambassadors are provided with tickets to Sydney Symphony Orchestra concerts and the chance to meet and interview artists and audience members. In addition, they welcome special groups to concerts, write about their concert experiences and work together to devise new ways of engaging with music.
Members of the program create a lively ongoing dialogue around the experience of live music and being part of a significant community of Orchestra members, supporters, academics and educators.
Applications for the 2019 program are now open.
