The City of Leeds Youth Orchestra are still seeking applications from viola and double bass players for the 2019-20 season.
If you know of anyone aged 11-18 who can play either of these instruments at around Grade 5-6 standard or above, please encourage them to apply!
CLYO is a 100-strong group of young orchestral musicians playing at the highest standards. The orchestra is conducted by Dougie Scarfe. They play the full range of symphonic repertoire and perform regularly in venues such as Leeds Town Hall. CLYO members also have the opportunity to go on tour every two years: in 2016 the orchestra toured the Czech Republic, and in July 2018 they visited Italy. The orchestra recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with a celebration concert in Leeds Town Hall.
Please note that we are not currently accepting any further applications for other instruments at this time.
