Welcome to the Honiton Youth Orchestra website
Closed due to Covid-19. We hope to restart rehearsals in September 2020
However, our members are still making music. We are continuing to meet online to rehearse together. It’s a very different experience to normal rehearsals, but we are making the best of it! You have probably seen many performance videos in recent weeks and we are making one of those each time we are ready to record a new piece. However, these are for HYO use only so we won’t be sharing them here or on our social media. If you want to hear us play you’ll have to wait until our next live performance which we hope will be in November or December 2020. Once we know when we can meet in person again, we’ll post details here.
But this is still important…
The most important thing you need to know, though, is that we meet on most Thursday evenings at St Paul’s Church in the centre of Honiton from 4.30 to 5.45pm. We welcome all orchestral musicians up to about age 19, approximately Grade 1 upwards, if you fit this description please use the Contact Us page to let us know you’ll be coming along so that we can have some music for you to play.
Rehearsal Dates for Spring Term 2020
Dates for the Autumn Term 2020 sessions will be posted here when they have been confirmed with the church.
[Our conductors have enhanced DBS checks and we have trained first aiders and qualified chaperones at the rehearsals. Parents/carers are welcome to stay but there are a number of cosy coffee shops in Honiton and some decent shopping too.]
