Our courses are usually held for the three days before the concert performance, with rehearsals running from 10am until 4pm, including an hour's break for lunch. The days days consist of full orchestral and sectional rehearsals, run by skilled student-teachers, and are held in various locations near to the concert venue. There is no charge for our courses, so membership of GYSO is free.
Members are generally aged between 13 and 25, ranging from present and past pupils at local schools, to university students from across the country. There is no audition process, but it is recommended that members are working towards Grade 8 as a minimum requirement.
The next course will take place from Thursday 24th - Saturday 27th August 2017
