The Bradford Youth Orchestra is holding auditions for students of orchestral instruments who are Grade 5 and above standard on Saturday 25 June 2022 at Titus Salt School.
The orchestra provides advanced instrumentalists with a wide range of musical opportunities while covering an exciting and ever more challenging range of repertoire, from film music to classical styles.
Students will have the opportunity to play and learn alongside dedicated and talented peers. All involved in the Youth Orchestra are keen to expand their musical experiences in a fun, inclusive, and challenging learning environment.
Past opportunities include performances at Music for Youth’s National Festival in Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, and crossover work with a range of performers, which have included Bollywood dancers and a Soul Group.
The orchestra tours abroad every other year; locations have included Poland, Austria, and Italy, among many others. A weekend residential is held annually which enables the orchestra to work in smaller chamber music groups as well as rehearsing current and
new orchestral repertoire.
