Our people make us

Volunteers and Life Members

BRYO is a community orchestra run entirely by dedicated and generous volunteers.  We appreciate our parents and friends that have donated their time and energy into assisting our organisations success.  In particular we would like to commend the following people who currently serve the Orchestra.

The aim of Brisbane Regional Youth Orchestra Inc. is to promote and foster scholarship, interest, enthusiasm and social welfare of youth in the learning, playing and appreciation of music in orchestral and other forms.

If you would like to get involved or volunteer please contact us.
