The West Island Youth Symphony Orchestra

The West Island Youth Symphony Orchestra (WIYSO), under the direction of Maestro Stewart Grant, is a symphonic ensemble from Montreal (Canada), whose mission is to give musicians aged 12 to 25 the opportunity to develop their talent by playing under the direction of a professional conductor and to further their knowledge of the orchestral repertoire.

The Orchestra gives many concerts throughout the year, holds weekly rehearsals, intensive workshops and music camps, and regularly takes part in festivals and exchanges in North America and Europe. The Orchestra also features small ensembles that perform at various community events in the course of the year. WIYSO has recorded two CD’s; a third is currently in the works.

The Orchestra participated in the Orchestrades universelles in Brive-la-Gaillarde (France) in 1995 and 2001. In 2008, it completed a 12-day European Tour to the Czech Republic, Austria and Italy, during which musicians performed in some of the most prestigious venues in the world.

The 2010-2011 season marks WIYSO’s 25th Anniversary. In celebration, the Orchestra is currently on a 13-day Concert Tour of France and Switzerland, with stops in Paris, Dijon, Interlaken (Jungfrau Festival), Bern and Aix-en-Provence (Festival provençal des orchestres de jeunes).
