The DYO Symphony Orchestra comprises approximately 95 players. Many of these players have come through the ranks of the Junior Stings, Intermediate and Concert Orchestras, and will have already spent 6 years as a member of DYO before joining the Symphony. The age range within the Symphony Orchestra is from 15 to 20 with some players remaining with us into their third level education.

The Symphony Orchestra has undertaken many numerous successful overseas tours, to Leuven in Belguim in 2020 and Lisbon in Portugal in 2018. In 2013 The Orchestra collaborated with the Irish National Youth Ballet, in performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty.
