Beginning in September 2019, some of our senior students and Sistema Toronto graduates came together to form our new Honours Youth Orchestra.

Sistema Toronto students meet weekly at their centres to practice advanced repertoire with a mentor. Once each month they meet at a central location where they will have the opportunity to practice together. The purpose is to provide our students with the opportunity to showcase their talents and be challenged with advanced repertoire.

The overall purpose of this project is to challenge students who show particular promise on their instrument, challenge them with advanced repertoire, hone their orchestra and music skills as well as their leadership and teamwork skills, and give them an opportunity to shine. It also ensures that graduates in high school can stay connected to the program.
