Do you play a string, brass, woodwind or percussion instrument?
Then you could play in the Somerset County Youth Orchestra (SCYO) or Somerset County Youth Concert Band (SCYCB)
We are the top county instrumental groups and we play real music – exactly the same music and parts as professional musicians. We give concerts all over the county and abroad. We meet for a few days in the Christmas and Easter school holidays for intensive rehearsals that end with a concert. We also arrange a residential course in the summer, usually during the last week of the term.
The Concert Band consists of full woodwind, brass and percussion/drums sections.
The Orchestra has smaller woodwind, brass and percussion sections, with a large string section.
You need to be at least grade 5 standard to join.
