The GDYO will make its 8th International Concert Tour in June of 2015. Members of the GDYO are not required to participate in the international tours, but most do, and there is a high expectation that you will participate in the tour if you are a member of the orchestra.
Scholarships: Students who otherwise could not afford travel may apply for scholarship assistance. Please visit the Support GDYO portion of this website to inquire about how you can help make touring possible for deserving youth.
Benefits include: Intensive study and multiple performance of repertoire in a concentrated period; Cultural exchange, living in and experiencing another culture; Living with and developing close friendships with fellow orchestra members.
