Founded in 1898, the York Symphony Orchestra is the city’s oldest amateur orchestra. Its aim is to give amateur musicians in York and the surrounding area the opportunity to rehearse and perform works from the orchestral repertoire. It is particularly keen to encourage younger players, and many of its soloists are young musicians with links to York. The orchestra meets weekly for rehearsals and gives three concerts each year, in November/December, March, and June/July.
We don’t currently have any vacancies in the orchestra, but if you would like to register an interest in playing with us, please contact email@example.com
