Our Vision

To empower young Australians with musical

knowledge and imagination, and instil in
them a love of music and a dedication to
the highest standards of performance.

Our Mission

To provide professional leadership and

inspiration to talented young Australian
musicians, enabling them to expand and
extend their classical music education
training and experience, through
national and international programs and
performance of the highest standards.

In 2010, a three-year cycle of development was crowned by the Australian Youth Orchestras International Tour,
which brought the cream of Australias young musical talent to some of the worlds most prestigious venues.
Under the direction of the acclaimed conductor Sir Mark Elder, the tour began with performances in Canberra
and the Sydney Opera House, followed by concerts in Shanghai, Tianjin and Beijing, then to Europe playing in
Londons Royal Albert Hall (for the BBC Proms), Harrogates Royal Hall, Copenhagens Tivoli Concert Hall and
Amsterdams Concertgebouw. The concerts were rapturously received and consistently praised in the highest
terms by critics.

The Tour represents the traditional pinnacle of the AYOs extensive range of programs, which attract the very
best of Australias young musicians and fosters their growth in every aspect of their musicianship and their
personal and professional development.

2010 also featured the Australian Youth Orchestra in a season of performances of Benjamin Brittens powerful
opera, Peter Grimes, directed by prominent Australian conductor Richard Mills, for the Perth International
Festival, along with twelve other major programs encompassing a wide array of stages and facets of musical
development and training. The National Music Camp was held in Canberra in 2010, bringing together two
symphony orchestras and a chamber orchestra in an intensive and exciting environment fostered by musical
leaders of high international standing: Lawrence Renes, Lutz Koehler and Howard Penny. A specialist exploration
of Baroque performance practice, in a Style Workshop headed by Elizabeth Wallfisch in partnership with Neal
Peres da Costa, highlighted the stylistic breadth and sophistication that has become an important feature of
the Australian musical landscape. Together with programs effectively targetting the needs and aspirations of
participants throughout the entire spectrum of the age-range of the AYOs activities, these programs offered
stimulating musical experiences that continue to leave a lasting impression on the individuals involved and help
to shape the progress of Australias musical culture.

The artistic vibrancy of the AYO is founded upon a sound financial and administrative base, and a network of
skilled musicians, administrators and experts in related fields that is truly global in its reach. I sincerely thank
our CEO, Colin Cornish for the drive and initiative he has brought to his role, and the staff who through their
hard work realize the range of the AYOs programs reaching across the whole continent of Australia and into the
international arena.

The AYO draws great strength too, from the commitment of my fellow Directors and the supporting committees
and councils which provide advice and assistance to the organisations management and staff. In particular, I
wish to record my thanks to retiring Director, Michele Walsh who has made a sterling contribution to the Boards
work over many years, as well as leading the Artistic Advisory Committee.

In an extensive and ambitious year, it is pleasing to observe that the AYO achieved a moderate operating surplus
in 2010. To maintain this level of activity and ambition for the AYOs role in Australian music, we are supported
chiefly by the Federal Government, and we appreciate the positive interest shown in the AYOs activities by
the Minister for Arts, Hon Simon Crean, MP and his predecessor, Hon Peter Garrett AM, MP. The Federal
Governments investment is complemented by the continuing support of Arts New South Wales, and a range
of corporate sponsors and donors, including our Principal Sponsor Accenture and Major Programs Partner, The
Colonial Foundation. A host of individuals, charities and corporate supporters provide funding to enable talented
individuals to participate in the AYOs programs through scholarships, and this is an increasingly important area
of focus to ensure that access to AYO programs is available to young musicians of all backgrounds.

Mary Vallentine AO

The Australian Youth Orchestra

Annual Report 2010

Through fourteen major programs presented in 2010, the Australian Youth Orchestra provided 373 young musicians
from every state and territory of Australia with opportunities to develop their musical skills to the highest level.
To ensure that the AYO garnered the talents of players from across the whole of Australia, auditions for 2010
programs were held in every capital city as well as in the major regional centres of Townsville in Queensland, and
Armidale and Orange in NSW.

A feature of the year was the high artistic standard achieved by the participants, who benefitted from an
increased focus throughout the years programs, on the provision of intense tutorial and section-development
work. Participants in programs were given the opportunity to work with leading musicians as tutors, conductors
and directors drawn from around Australia and worldwide.

The year commenced with the National Music Camp held in Canberra at the Australian National University and
directed by percussionist, Tim White. With rhythm as its theme, NMC 2010 explored the coupling of melodic
beauty with the vitality of rhythm in performances of a range of orchestral masterworks. Thirteen concerts were
featured during the Camp, given by the two symphony orchestras, chamber orchestra and numerous smaller
chamber ensembles, all supported by busy teams in the Words About Music and Arts Administration programs.

The clear highlight of the year was the AYOs 20th International Tour held in July. For the first time in its history,
the Orchestra toured three continents in one tour. Musicians were engaged and challenged by the conductor for
the tour, Sir Mark Elder who was extremely well received by the musicians, audiences and critics alike. In addition,
the Orchestra had the pleasure of working with young mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova and pianist Alexey
Yemtsov. Throughout the Tour, the Orchestras concerts received enthusiastic receptions with particular highlights
being two standing ovations in Beijing, a live radio broadcast and telecast of the BBC Proms performance, and a
standing ovation at the Concertgebouw.

Back at home, the Orchestras February season was a ground-breaking collaboration with the West Australian
Opera to present Brittens opera, Peter Grimes. This program successfully met its objective to build the Orchestras
performance endurance in preparation for the demands of the upcoming International Tour. Additionally, it
provided a rare and valuable opportunity for the Orchestra members to build their understanding of the many,
varied elements of Opera and its production.

In March, the AYO Brass Quintet and in April/May, the AYO String Quartet completed regional residency programs
in Coffs Harbour, NSW and the Barossa Valley, SA respectively. Further regional activity included the extended
Regional Residency which took place in Ballarat, VIC. The finest young aspiring chamber musicians travelled
to Newcastle, NSW to complete the AYO Chamber Music Camp. The timing of this program, following the
International Tour, attracted a much younger group of participants providing them with opportunities to rise to
leadership positions.

The Melbourne Recital Centre was the location for the 2010 Style Workshop help over the Easter long weekend.
The program provided an in-depth exploration of style in playing baroque music, and featured each violinist
involved as solo players in Vivaldis Lestro armonico concertos, op.3.

For younger musicians, the Young Symphonists program provides the perfect way in to the AYO experience.
This years program took place at Frensham School, Mittagong, NSW, directed by Paul Wright (strings) and Peter
Moore (wind, brass, percussion).

The Australian Youth Orchestra

Annual Report 2010

At the other end of the spectrum of personal and professional development, musicians who are on the cusp of
entering professional careers were involved in the well-established Orchestral Fellowships programs conducted
jointly with the Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, and members of the AYO combined with the
TSO for a concert of major orchestral repertoire.

The success of each of these programs would not be possible without the support of Government (the Federal
Government and Arts NSW) and our program partners. In addition to the many benefits provided through
the contribution of our Principal Sponsor, Accenture, the AYOs work is actively supported by The Colonial
Foundation,and Mallesons Stephen Jaques. For the International Tour, the AYO relies on the generosity of many
individual donors, and our international Tour Partner, Downer.

The inspiring feature of the entire AYO venture is the coalescence of contributions by a wide range of individuals and
communities towards a shared aim. I am grateful to the Chairman, Mary Vallentine AO and the Board of Directors
for their continuing leadership, passion and dedication to the AYO. The AYOs staff is renowned throughout the
industry for the dedication and unwavering energy they bring to the herculean task of maintaining a high level of
activity across an enormous spread of geography and scale.
