The CSYO are delighted to welcome Peter Cropper as their new president:
"I am delighted to take on this role. My aim over the next few years will be to make the city aware of the great achievements the CSYO has made. Few people realise that we have one of the most admired youth orchestras in the country. We therefore need to make sure that we can keep the funding necessary to maintain the high standard that we have attained. This is important not only for the development of all the young musicians taking part but also for the soul of the city."
CSYO member Jonathan Rawlinson is currently taking the Channel 4 game show Countdown by storm. Having won his last five games in a row Jonathan only has another 3 games to win before qualifying for the finals. 'Things are pretty exhausting' said Jonathan 'the last five shows were recorded between 2pm and 9pm in one day!!' If Jonathan is succesful, and he is keeping this a secret, the final will be broadcast next Thursday 21st June at ten past three. Good Luck Jonathan!!
