The West Coast Youth Orchestra (WCYO) is a culturally diverse non-profit organization, that provides Music Outreach & Development Programs to the youth on the South African West Coast.

We build our projects on firm foundations, that simultaneously benefit the students, schools and their communities, securing future partnerships with community leaders, and address the pressing social and cultural needs of the West Coast.

Our target group is the youths and young adults, but we strongly believe that any child should have the opportunity to join our programs regardless of their background, ability or social economic status, because music education should be a right NOT a privilege.


Carina’s Musici Orchestra was established in 1996, with a handful of children practicing as one large mixed ensemble. Soon under the careful care, guidance and expertise of founding member, Ms. Carina Brown the numbers grew rapidly; the various ensemble groups started to participate in local events and Eisteddfods. The West Coast Youth Orchestra, NPC no 132-992 was registered in August 2013 and has since grown immensely. Read More
