Come and Play with Orange Youth Orchestra

Sat 18 February at 1:30 pm

Inviting all young musicians to come along and see what the Orange Youth Orchestra is all about! Orange’s long standing youth ensemble is looking forward to a massive 2023, and we are kicking things off with a big open rehearsal!

If you are 25 or younger and play a string, wind, brass or percussion instrument you are invited along to join in! Even if you think you don’t quite have the skills to join now, you can still come along to find out what the future holds for you and have some fun.

Meet our new conductors! OYO has a new conducting team for 2023, and they’ve been busily preparing new, fresh and fun repertoire for the year. This newly formed trio will lead our flagship student ensemble into the future with a dynamic, energetic and modern approach. For over 30 years OYO has provided regional music students with high-quality orchestral training and experiences, and with this new team at the helm, it is ready for another 30 more.

So, come along, meet the team, meet fellow students from across the region, play some tunes and join us for afternoon tea. Meet us in the ORC Auditorium at 1:30pm Saturday 18th February.
