As the longest standing amateur orchestra in York, we aim to provide our musicians with an enriching environment to enjoy and develop their love of classical music, and to share this passion for beautiful music with our friends, families and the local community.

2021/2022 Season

Our next concert is on Saturday 2nd April 2022 at 7.30pm and includes Smyth The Wreckers Overture and Elgar Symphony No.1 in A♭ Major Op. 55. We will also be playing Vaughan Williams In the Fen Country whose 150th anniversary of his birth is celebrated this year.

For full details on this concert, and future concerts, please see the Concerts page.

We would be grateful if audience members could take a lateral flow test prior to the concert and wear masks in the concert hall building.


Fifth Horn – This involves deputising for any of the four fixed section members at rehearsals when they are absent, or otherwise bumping on first. The position would suit a sensitive horn player who would not otherwise want the responsibility of playing a fixed part.

We currently have vacancies in the Viola section.

If you are interested, please send your playing CV to: ysorch@googlemail.com
Players should be of grade 8 standard or demonstrate equivalent orchestral experience.
