Melbourne Youth Music Incorporated

Also known as “Melbourne Youth Orchestras”, Melbourne Youth Music Incorporated is a large-scale charity established in 1965. Their main activity is registered as other education primarily serving youth - 15 to under 25.

We brought young Victorian musicians together to access specialist resources, equipment and expertise beyond what is available in schools. We undertook rehearsals, concerts and other programs for youth orchestras including symphony orchestras, string orchestras, symphonic bands and jazz orchestras.
