Commonwealth Youth Orchestra and Choir

The Commonwealth Youth Orchestra and Choir (CYO) is the first, and remains the only, full-time music organisation in the world, which works 24/7, 52 weeks a year, exclusively across 6 continents and throughout all 54 Commonwealth Nations.

In 2011 the CYO received an unique, substantial and unanimous endorsement of its work from all the Commonwealth Heads of Government which they published in an official Commonwealth Communique.

With Her Majesty The Queen, Head of The Commonwealth, as its Diamond Jubilee Patron 2012, the CYO continues to work tirelessly to deliver its mission of “using music as a means of international dialogue, knowing no boundaries”, through its three-point plan “Engage-Educate-Empower”, and creating opportunities for engaged diversity in action.
