About the YPT
After being without a youth orchestra for two decades, Tauranga saw the birth of the Youth Philharmonic Tauranga during a symphonic workshop in October 2016. In 2017, the YPT presented two complete and well attended concerts at the Graham Young Youth Theatre.
The Music Director and main conductor is Justus Rozemond, who also conducts the Bay of Plenty Symphonia
Information for new players
The YPT holds weekly rehearsals on Wednesday evening (7-9pm at the Historic Village). Note that rehearsal attendance is compulsory (but there are no rehearsals during school holidays). If you are interested in playing with us, do make sure to contact us, ideally using the registration form you can find on this web-site (top right).
There is a subscription payable ($20 per player per programme in 2018).

The presence of a youth orchestra in town is vital for the artistic health of Tauranga, so please support us in any way you can!
