Sydney Youth Orchestras Present SYO Toddlers’ Proms in the Paddington Town Hall

Inspiring a love of music to last a lifetime!


On Sunday 1st March, Sydney Youth Orchestras’ SYO Toddlers’ Proms in Paddington Town Hall promises to capture the hearts, minds and imaginations of small children to inspire a life-long love for the magic of music.


Every SYO Toddlers’ Prom is as unique as every child and the performance at Paddington Town Hall promises to be no exception with arrangements from much-loved children’s classics including Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ from Beauty and the Beast, ‘You’ve Got A Friend Like Me’ from Toy Story; and ‘Under The Sea’ from The Little Mermaid as well as orchestral arrangements from history’s most popular classical and contemporary composers.


SYO Toddlers’ Proms in Paddington Town Hall will be conducted by James Pensini and performed by some of Australia’s most talented young musicians from the widely acclaimed Sydney Youth Orchestras’ Symphonic Wind Orchestra in an entertaining, engaging, inspiring, interactive and educational celebration of music ensured to delight little ones aged 2 to 8.  


Presented by the Commonwealth Bank, the SYO Toddlers’ Proms will give small children the chance to see and hear wind instruments, each with their own unique sound, bringing to life the sheer magic of orchestral music as they clap, hum, sing and dance along.


Stephanie Hutchinson, General Manager of Sydney Youth Orchestras said, “SYO Toddlers’ Proms are the perfect introduction to the magic of music for young children.  Children become enthralled, wide-eyed with wonder, fascinated by the instruments and music which, according to research studies provides a rich, sensory environment encouraging intellectual, social and personal development.”


Parents, grandparents and carers can be confident their child will experience a unique and special introduction to orchestral music that is fun, creative, interactive, engaging and educational to inspire a life-long love of music.

Sydney Youth Orchestra

The Sydney Youth Orchestra was founded as a single orchestra in 1973 by the visionary music educator and conductor, Peter Seymour.  Since then it has grown to become a community of over 400 young musicians, aged 7-25, from all over Sydney and beyond. We gather weekly for rehearsal in the city, in eleven different ensembles carefully constructed to match skill, age and experience. Together we inspire excellence, presenting public concerts and performing in major community events such as Carols in the Domain, energetic Toddlers’ Proms for very young children, and outreach programs including concerts and workshops in regional NSW.
