Estonian Youth Wind Orchestra (EstYWO) is the legal successor of the Republican Youth Wind Orchestra, founded in 1972. The founder and the chief conductor of the Republican Youth Wind Orchestra was Ilmar Tõnisson and the

In 2013, the Estonian Youth Wind Orchestra participated at the ESTO days in the United States, San Francisco.

 

2013-2018, the music council of Estonian Choral Society appointed Sirly Illak-Oluvere as the chief conductor of EstYWO, the second conductor was Riivo Jõgi (2013-2017) and the project manager was Maria Mägar.

 

In 2014, the orchestra organized two camps – in January (Türi, Estonia) and in August (Võru and Vana-Vigala, Estonia). Andres Kontus (trombone), Madis Vilgats (tuba), Indrek Vau (trumpet) and Rene Laur (saxophone) tutored the camp in August. In addition a recognized Russian musician Arkady Shilkloper performed on alphorn in a concert together with EstYWO.
