Courses

The courses offered by Yorchestra

Yorchestra courses are held three times a year, during the school holidays at Easter, summer and Christmas.

There are courses for all orchestras during the summer and Christmas sessions.  Because Yorchestras 1 and 2 tend to be made up of players of secondary-school / sixth-form age, who are likely to be preparing for external examinations shortly after the Easter holidays, the Easter session is for Yorchestra 3, Yorchestra 4 and Yorchestra Young Strings only.

The Easter and Christmas courses run over a maximum of 3 days, and the summer course runs over a maximum of 4 days.

Special workshops (eg. jazz / improvisation, chamber music) are usually included in the 4 day courses.
