The Cheshire Youth Orchestras comprise some of the most talented young musicians from all over Cheshire. The three orchestras provide a fun and friendly environment where young musicians can meet and play in a symphony orchestra setting on a regular basis to develop their musical skills. We rehearse on six Saturdays per term. There is a concert at the end of each term, normally on the Sunday afternoon. Rehearsals take place at Mid-Cheshire College, Hartford. Concerts take place in various locations throughout Cheshire.
