Standard of playing?:

The youth orchestra is ‘intermediate’ to ‘advanced’ in standard. That is to say, you should be about Grade 4 when starting the orchestra. In practice this means that we have some members who are not quite at that level (perhaps at about Grade 3) and some who are well above it - even to Grade 8 and diploma standard. Our aim is to accommodate, stretch and encourage all who wish to participate. You do not need to have taken grade examinations to join the orchestra - you just need to be able to play music which is around Gr 4 standard when you join for the first time. If you’re unsure, please get in touch
