Additional Opportunities


Musicians in KYO ensembles have the opportunity to compete in our annual Concerto Challenge. The selected challenger will perform in concert as a soloist at the final KYO concert in June 2022.



An annual masterclass series is led by some of Canada’s top professional musicians; public attendance is welcome at all masterclasses.

Masterclasses have been suspended during the pandemic. New events, in due time, will be posted here!


Each season from December to March, SKYO musicians participate in a composition project. Musicians learn techniques for composing melody and harmony, write new music for a small ensemble of various instruments, and discover personal and deeply meaningful creativity. Details about this program are provided in our annual Musician’s Handbook.
