The Kevinwood Orchestra of Eastwood, Australia
was formed as a Youth Orchestra in Workshop style at the 1976 Festival of St Cecilia.
In 1985, the International Youth Year, Kevinwood raised funds amounting to $30,000 to take part in the International Youth Music Festival held in July in Zurich, Switzerland.
Currently it is a more broad-based community orchestra taking people across a wide range of ages. It performs at various Community functions in the Ryde/Eastwood/Epping area and travels to country locations to share its enjoyment of music with the wider community
