The purpose of this meeting is to create a large symphony orchestra with more then hundred musicians and 50 singers, so that divine sound can touch  all the creatures of the Earth, in union with the harmony of heaven, so together we can contribute to a world of peace and love among all peoples of the Earth.

The Rotary Youth International Orchestra doesn’t just unite a musical entity, it unites almost every kind of subject or group interested in achievement and optimisation as well as a working of human and social aim, inspired and balanced by the supreme divine value of all peoples of the Earth.

All those who feel that they could be useful in some way, including musicians, singers, associations, schools, sponsors, media, rotarians, etc., all whom want to take part in the international great orchestra, can contact us to work with us, using our resources, for the realisation and construction of the Rotary Youth International Orchestra to create a better world by encouraging union and love with people in all the Earth.
