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.

PeterCropperSometimes we are fortunate enough to meet and work with someone who is truly inspirational. One such person was Peter Cropper. We have been shocked and saddened by his untimely and sudden death last week. His dedication to music knew no bounds and music in Sheffield will be diminished by his passing.

Some will remember him as a founder member of the Lindsey Quartet or Music in the Round, others as brilliant, if demanding teacher and mentor. He was a prodigious talent, locally, nationally and internationally in demand, known and respected

We, as the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra, have much to thank him for as our behind the scenes, hard working Honorary President these past few years. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, with Nina Martin who taught many of our members, and with Hazel and Martin much loved tutors of the orchestra in whom we have a lasting legacy.

IMAG0470.resizedThere is an article about the CSYO and City Hall concert in the Sheffield Telegraph:

"AFTER an eight-year delay in its construction because of financial constraints, building began on the City Hall in 1929 with the laying of the foundation stone and it opened on September 22 1932.

Taking to the venue’s stage in three weeks time, on the exact 80th anniversary date, will be the City of Sheffield Youth Orchestra with a family concert."
