About Us

The Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra provides a musical experience of pre-professional calibre to talented young musicians in the Greater Toronto Area.  For years, their performances have astounded listeners who arrive expecting to hear a group of youthful amateurs, and leave comparing them to post-secondary or adult ensembles.  There are TYWO alumni in several major symphony orchestras and boards of education across Canada, the U.S. and abroad.  Although not all members go on to a career in music, all do carry with them the pride of being part of a unique musical family, with memories and friendships that last for years.
