The original function of NYO Canada was to prepare a student orchestra for an annual cross-Canada tour. As time went on, however, the organization developed and elaborated its instructional program, becoming primarily a training body dedicated to perfecting the skills and talents of the best young Canadian musicians for careers as professional orchestral players through short but intensive summer session programs.
