Lancashire Youth Symphony Orchestra

Our youth symphony orchestra (LYSO) is one of Lancashire Music Service’s county ensembles, providing inspiring opportunities for young musicians across Lancashire

Watch our recent performance – LYSO and LSSO Night on a Bare Mountain – Orchestras in Lockdown:

New players very welcome
(grade 5 standard and above, strings grade 4)

We also run the Lancashire Schools Symphony Orchestra for players who are beginning their musical journey working at Grade 2 and above.

We’re particularly keen to recruit young people playing strings, double reed instruments, lower brass and french horn.

The orchestra offers you the opportunity to work with inspiring leaders and professional musicians, alongside like-minded young people from across Lancashire.

LANCASHIRE YOUTH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA SCHEDULE:

Please note – updated schedules will be issued throughout the year so that we can be as flexible as possible in responding changes in government guidance.

We are aiming to rehearse again live and in person in line as government guidance allows.

Each rehearsal day will start with a Zoom session at 10am for the whole orchestra.

Sectionals will take place at different times throughout the day in order to host separate sessions for you on Zoom at different times.

Spring Term 2021

A schedule will be sent in advance of each Sunday rehearsal as times will vary to allow for instrument sectionals at the start of term, building to larger groups of instruments as the term progresses.

Regular emails and updated schedules will be issued throughout the year so that we can be as flexible as possible in responding changes in government guidance regarding Covid 19.
