City of Leeds Youth Training Orchestra (CLYTO)

Rehearsals take place on Fridays during term time from 6.45-8.45pm.

We meet at Pudsey Civic Hall.

CLYTO play a wide range of music – anything from Bach to James Bond (and beyond!) Players of all orchestral instruments (strings, woodwind, brass and percussion) can join the group and our age range is from 10-18. For most instruments the music is around Grade 4-5 level but you don’t need to have taken any exams to join. Our conductors are always happy to discuss any questions you might have about this. We don’t hold auditions, but it’s helpful if you’ve played in a group before.  We give concerts three times a year, often joining with other CLYM groups or ensembles from music centres across Leeds.

Conductors: Ralph Tong and Megan Swinchin

We will finish for the summer holidays on 19th July but will be back on Friday 6th September 2019!

Open Rehearsals for the Autumn Term will be held on Friday 6th and 13th September 2019, we would love to see you there!
