2020 Auditions QYO3 Banner.jpg

Queensland Youth Orchestra 3

For many of its 80 members, QYO3 offers the first experience of playing in a full-sized symphony orchestra. Conductor Bruce Davidson selects a variety of repertoire which includes original works for symphony orchestra and arrangements of film music and musicals. QYO3 will perform three concerts in the Concert at Twilight series at the Old Museum Concert Hall, a concert at the Gold Coast and the QYO Finale Concert at QPAC. For QYO3, positions are offered ‘within the section’ and seating orders are arranged by the conductor within the first few rehearsals and finalised at camp.
