Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra

The Singapore National Youth Chinese Orchestra (SNYCO) is made up of more than 90 talented musicians between the ages of 11 to 26. Only the finest musicians are selected to be members through the rigorous auditions held each year. As a National Project of Excellence (NPOE) recognised by the Ministry of Education, SNYCO strives to nurture aspiring musicians into future pillars of Chinese music in Singapore.

SNYCO has been placed under the management of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) since 2003 and held its inaugural concert in 2004. In April 2015, it came under the purview of the National Arts Council and is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. Under this arrangement, SNYCO members are able to receive personal tutelage under the guidance of SCO musicians. With sustained involvement in SNYCO, members studying in mainstream Secondary Schools will be awarded with Co-Curricular Activity (CCA) points in recognition of their participation.
