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.

 

Orchestras

Yorchestra offers five different levels of orchestra, each with repertoire which is carefully selected to match the playing abilities of the participants.  To check which one is likely to be right for you, click here: Orchestras ▶︎
