The Sudbury Youth Orchestra (SYO), founded in 1972, is an award-winning non-profit organization that provides a caliber of orchestral playing comparable to that found in any major Canadian city. Members range in age from 11 to their early 20's. The Orchestra is conducted by Jamie Arrowsmith who holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Kent State University.

The orchestra operates through Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario and is the only musical organization in Sudbury offering musical instruction and experience in orchestral repertoire for the young.
