The Queensland Youth Symphony is widely recognised as a world-class youth orchestra and is the leading ensemble of Queensland Youth Orchestras. The orchestra enhanced its reputation during the 2012 international tour to Asia and Europe, earning much praise from audience members and critics, and many standing ovations during the ten-concert tour.

QYS performs an annual concert series at the QPAC and Old Museum Concert Halls, and entertains audiences with music from the baroque to modern periods, with a focus on works from the late 19th and 20th centuries, and by contemporary Australian composers.

Rated No. 4 in ABC Classic FM’s survey of listeners’ favourite symphonies, Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony was inspired by the composer’s friend and mentor, Franz Liszt. Saint-Saëns described its composition as follows: "I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have accomplished here, I will never achieve again."

QYS Alumnus Paul Dean is one of Australia’s leading soloists, recitalists, chamber musicians and artistic directors. He has commissioned and premiered over 100 works and we welcome him as soloist in Finzi’s elegaic Clarinet Concerto.
