DAAYO International Tours

International Tours

As a youth orchestra with an international flair, the Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra believes that performing and touring abroad can be a powerful and engaging experience which stimulates growth on the part of the student in many ways. Observing different cultures in person can be an eye and mind opening experience. We use music as a bridge to make cultural connections and memories that last a lifetime.

Our trips are bi-annual, and are open to all DAAYO members. In addition, we open up spots on the tour to alumni as well as outside instrumentalists as available.
