The City Of Sheffield Youth Orchestra

Doante to CSYO

CSYO has about a hundred players whose ages range from 13 to 21 years. Membership is subject to audition and is open to any young players who live in or around the Sheffield locality. Most are still at school but some are at college, many of them training as professional musicians. The orchestra assembles three times a year usually during holiday periods for concentrated training courses with tutors and conductors of professional standing. The courses are usually residential and are followed by a concert or a concert tour.

PeterCropperThe 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."
