Applications for a place in CLYO in September 2015 need to be in by 22nd May.  You may download the application form here CLYM Enrolment Application Form 2015-16.  Don’t delay!

Although priority is given to players from Leeds, players from a wider area are very welcome to apply as well, as most sections of the orchestra have further places available.  We have over 30 players leaving at the end of this term so this is YOUR opportunity to become part of our very special orchestra :) Do contact the Friends of CLYO via this website (under ‘Contact’) if you would like to discuss this further.

For further details of the various CLYM groups, take a look at CLYM Leaflet Jan 2015

The City of Leeds Youth Orchestra maintains a reputation as one of the leading ensembles of its kind in the country. The orchestra has been providing exceptional music-making for young instrumentalists from across Yorkshire for over 40 years.

With nearly 100 members aged 19 and under, the orchestra offers young musicians the unparalleled experience of a full symphony orchestra, enjoying repertoire that ranges from full symphonies to concertos, overtures and popular film music.

Regular performance venues include Leeds Town Hall and St Edmund’s Church, Roundhay, while the orchestra may also be heard further afield during the last week of the summer term which is spent either on a residential course in northern England or on tour in Europe.

The orchestra is a City of Leeds Youth Music (CLYM) ensemble. CLYM is organised by ArtForms on behalf of the Leeds Music Education Partnership.
