Bluescope Youth Orchestra- Music from the Movies
The BlueScope Youth Orchestra has been one of the flagship performing ensembles of the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music for the past 35 years, providing performance opportunities and orchestral training to the youth of the Illawarra region and surrounding areas. It currently has 35 players aged 12 to 19 years of age, and is conducted by Nigel Edwards.
