Ever wondered what it’s like to perform in an orchestra?

Friendly, exciting, inspiring, fun!  These are the four most popular words used by Adelaide Youth Orchestra (AdYO) musicians to describe what it’s like. AdYO is  now inviting musicians between 8 and 24 to audition for up to 250 places across its orchestras. You can experience the challenges and thrills of orchestral playing; be inspired by highest-quality musicians from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and make lifelong friends along the way.

Rehearsals are on weekends during term time at the Elder Conservatorium of Music located at the University of Adelaide and concerts are performed across Adelaide in a variety of venues including Elder Hall and the Adelaide Town Hall. Scholarships are always available to ensure no one misses out. Applications are now open and auditions will be held at the end of November.

  • The Adelaide Gaol is one of the oldest remaining colonial public buildings in Adelaide and is the site of some of the State's more interesting, grisly past. Experience what life was like behind bars for the prisoners who once called the Adelaide Gaol their home. The Adelaide Gaol housed some of the state's most notorious and dangerous criminals. Almost 300,000 prisoners whiled away some time at His (or Her) Majesty's pleasure, and 45 unfortunates were executed within its walls - including the only woman to be executed in South Australia. Approximately 300,000 prisoners passed through the Gaol during its working years and 45 people were executed. Their bodies are buried within the grounds of the Gaol. The first public hanging took place in November 1840 while the site was still under construction.
