Durham Music is delighted to relaunch the Durham Music Youth Orchestra. This is a fantastic opportunity to play in a high-level musical group and is open to string players of Grade 5 standard and above and to wind/brass players of Grade 6 and above. We are also looking for percussionists who can read orchestral percussion parts.   

The orchestra will meet on Saturday mornings fortnightly 9.30 -12.30 at Framwellgate School Durham. The first part of the rehearsal will be strings only, the 2nd half will be full orchestra. This will allow for players who already play in Durham Music County Wind Band to play in both groups.  

Our summer project will include an introductory event for all new members, a workshop with member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and finish with a performance for friends and family in June as part of our Durham Music Trust Alumni celebrations.  

Durham Music is delighted to subsidise DMYO so participation is FREE for all musicians. To sign up, please click the link. We can’t wait to meet you!  

Deadline for registration is 4th May 2022.
