Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra was formed in 1951 and is the final tier in the progression through Gloucestershire Music’s Orchestras and Bands.
The orchestra rehearses on Thursday evenings during term-time, and may give as many as nine concerts a year, performing programmes that range from the 18th century to the present day.
Membership of GYO is by audition only. String, brass and percussion players need to be at around a grade 7 standard and woodwind players around grade 8.
For further information, see the details on the ‘News’ page or contact the Orchestra’s Conductor Glyn Oxley.
