Under Construction… Will be complete soon...

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 proudly operate in an honest, transparent & disciplined manner that adheres to the Code of Conduct of the Non Profit Act. The community, schools and local government have therefore gained a trust in us, ensuring the success of current and future projects. We build our projects on a firm foundation, that simultaneously benefit the students, schools and their communities, enabling future partnerships with community leaders, that will address the pressing social and cultural needs of West Coast.

Our target group is the youths and young adults, but we strongly believe that any musician should have the opportunity to join one of our programs regardless of their background, ability or social economic status.

The West Coast Youth Orchestra, NPC no: 132-992 was registered in August 2013 and has since grown immensely. Read More
