Manukau Youth Orchestra Incorporated Society

The Manukau Youth Orchestra was established in 1974. We provide affordable music tuition for young people and run several bands and orchestras based in Manurewa.

The orchestra & band subscription is $6 for the year, the three day orchestra camp costs $20 and concerts are always free. Cost of music lessons in our three schools varies according to funding. Contact the Musical Director and Instrument Tutor Joseph Allan for more information or to join any of the orchestras or bands.

The senior orchestra practises Tuesday 6:30pm to 8pm at Hillpark Primary School in Manurewa. A three day camp is held every year to learn new music. The senior orchestra performs three major concerts each year and one or two informal garden concerts. Orchestra members are aged 8 to 18 years. In December 2017 we started the Manurewa Mariachi Project which we plan to run in the summer months each year.
