QYO does not provide any insurance cover for QYO members or their instruments and QYO does not accept responsibility for damage to members’ instruments at QYO activities or during transport to and from QYO activities.

QYO strongly advises members to:

  • Be careful where instruments and cases are left. For rehearsals in the concert hall, it is best to leave small instrument cases on the chairs on the audience seating. Large cases (eg. cellos) are best stored against the walls in the audience area but away from the fire exits. For Studios 1 and 2, please use the floor next to the wall, provided there is adequate space for people to walk past.
  • Return instruments to their cases when they are not being used, rather than leave them on an orchestra chair.

QYO has personal accident insurance for official volunteers and public liability insurance for all of its activities.
