City of Leeds Youth Wind Orchestra play a broad range of music: from transcriptions and arrangements of classical works to contemporary music written for wind bands, music from theatre and film as well as pop and jazz. The age range of the group is 12-19 and we play at around Grade 5-6 level and above. Musicians are welcome to join without formal qualifications if they are of the right standard. Auditions are held in June but expressions of interest are always welcome as spaces may be available throughout the year.
Conductors: Richard Kippen and Ed Roberts
