Celebrating 40 Years of CSYO
Each Summer we go on tour, alternating between touring the UK and abroad. Previous tours have taken us to Belgium, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Spain, France, Italy, Norway and the Netherlands. We perform with internationally renowned soloists such as Nigel Kennedy, Peter Cropper, Matthew Barley and Natalie Clein.
We perform in churches, on beaches, in continental village squares, in palaces (Palazzo Vechio in Florence), imposing concert halls (Manuella concert Hall in Granada) and even Roman Amphitheatres. We have played to audiences of over 5,000 people and been broadcast live on Radio across Europe.
In 2005, we were honoured to be the first western Youth Orchestra to be invited to accompany the Bolshoi dancers performing Swan Lake in a Roman Amphitheatre in Pula, Croatia. The event was recorded by television crews from across the continent.
In 2018 we returned to Italy to perform in the Emiglia Romagna region.
