The majority of the members of the Bradford Youth Training Orchestra are also members of our  Masharti String Orchestra and our Intermediate Wind Band, though there are also members who are not part of these groups (these groups do not meet on the dates that the Bradford Youth Training Orchestra meet)

This mixed ensemble is a great way to improving  playing skills and to meet  other students of a similar standard. It feeds into Bradford Music Services premier group, the Bradford Youth Orchestra.  The BYTO gives regular concerts at venues across the Bradford District.

The orchestra learns and performs a wide range of musical styles giving its members a great opportunity to experience music from different eras and genres.

The minimum standard required is Grade 2.  Instruments that are represented are all Brass and Woodwind instruments, Strings and Percussion, including timpani, glockenspiel, xylophone and snare drum.

The conductors of the orchestra are Richard Field and Judith Lawler.

The cost of the membership of the Training Orchestra alone will be £3 per session which will be collected by Direct Debit over a 12 month period (the first payment will be collected in September  and the last in August on the 15th of each month) If the student is a member of another Music & Arts Service music group, then membership of this orchestra will be  subsidised.

Recent repertoire includes: Harry Potter Theme, Danse Macabre

Approx. standard: Grade 2-5.
