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 over 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.
