    Congleton Youth Orchestra Formed in 1994 the Congleton Youth Orchestra is established as an organisation that provides quality musical opportunities for young musicians in the South Cheshire area. Training Groups. Intermediate Groups (Grades 1-4) Senior Orchestra (Grade 4 upwards) Where: Trinity Methodist Church, West Street, Congleton When: Saturdays: 9.00am-12.15pm Website: http://congleton-youth-orchestra.org.uk/   Congleton Youth Orchestra We have been the only Youth Orchestra in Congleton for over 20 years and now have a hundred members ranging in ability from beginners to Grade 8 & Diploma level. Although we are an Orchestra we don’t only play classical music , the programme for our last concert in November included music from the Beatles, Broadway Shows, Gilbert & Sullivan as well as the 3rd movement from Brahms 4th Symphony, The March to the Scaffold from, Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique. Our repertoire also includes film music, we regularly perform music from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Lord of the Rings , Titanic, Harry Potter . Also Jazz and Big Band music from Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington, Burt Bacharach. We rehearse on a Saturday morning at the Trinity Methodist Church on Wagg Street in Congleton and perform 3 concerts each year at the end of the Spring, Summer and Autumn. Terms Congleton Youth Orchestra is made up of 4 sections, the Senior Orchestra, Intermediate Woodwind and Brass, Intermediate Strings and Beginners. Our Intermediate groups also perform at our concerts , at our last concert all the Intermediates players (which now numbers approx 40) took over the stage and performed pieces arranged by Judith Hearson the Wind/Brass Tutor, The Intermediates then played Handel’s Water Music Suite no. 2 alongside the Senior Orchestra. With funding from Love Music Trust, for the last 2 years we have taken a group of young musicians to the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester for a music workshop, this year the Seniors enjoyed a day of composing and performing all done without writing or reading a single note of music, they spent the day using graphic scores, symbols for the sound required rather than a note marked as ff, a very interesting day which included a tour of the Bridgewater Hall. Utilising the Love Music Trust and a our own stock of instruments we can provide “almost” any instrument a new member would like to play, although there is a membership fee of £25 per term there are no fees for the tuition you will receive to get you started on your chosen instrument . If you would like to know more about us then please come along on a Saturday morning for a listen or visit our website at www.congleton-youth-orchestra.org.uk for more details.
