About Us

The Fisher's Ghost Youth Orchestra is a not-for-profit organisation that was formed in 1987 with the aim of providing the South-West Sydney community with it's own orchestra.  FGYO is comprised of a Senior Orchestra and a Training Orchestra.  These separate orchestras encompass Primary School Students through to University Students. Our membership also includes some passionate adult musicians who are mentors for the younger members.

The FGYO currently performs three concerts a year within the Macarthur region where both the Senior and Training Orchestras perform.  Other performances include:

• Toddler Proms, Campbelltown & Camden;
• Fisher’s Ghost Parade;
• Performances at local shopping centres and schools;
• School Holiday Workshops (Training Orchestra).

The Orchestra aims to promote the musical development of young people in the Greater South-West Sydney Region by providing opportunity to motivate and inspire students through participation in regular performances and workshops.  The Orchestra also provides school leavers the opportunity to keep up and improve their musical skills beyond High School.

The Orchestra performs a diverse repertoire - you'll find an ever-growing mix of the traditional to the progressive: classical, baroque, romantic, modern, post-modern, ballet music, film music, music from musicals, music from operas, Irish and other folk music, and even music from computer games. The orchestra has been active in performing premiere performances of new works, including some by it's own members.

Since 2001, the orchestra has operated the Training Orchestra, to cater for younger and/or developing musicians. The Training Orchestra also perform at our Concert Series. Most Training Orchestra members eventually 'graduate' to the main orchestra.

Can You Support Us?  
There are many costs associated with running a community orchestra. Increasing hall hire and insurance costs cause a financial strain and are necessarily reflected in member's fees.   If you are able to offer sponsorship to contribute towards these expenses the Orchestra would be most appreciative.  FGYO would be very happy to include advertising and or acknowledgement on our website, concert advertising and programs to any business or individual in return for assistance in this regard. Please contact us to speak to a committee member if you are in a position to offer sponsorship or make a donation.
