The Hon. James Merlino MP


The Victorian Government is proud to be a longstanding partner of Melbourne Youth Orchestras.

Victoria has a great reputation as an artistic and cultural hub, and for many years, has produced and supported some of Australia’s finest musicians.

The Melbourne Youth Orchestras program brings hundreds of talented young musicians together to hone their skills, learn from some outstanding musicians and be inspired to pursue their love of music. It also provides students with the opportunity to form new friendships and forge connections within the music industry.

The Victorian Government considers music to be a vital part of a well-rounded education.

Melbourne Youth Orchestras has made an important contribution to the musical education of thousands of young people.

I look forward to seeing more of these talented young musicians.
