Welcome to the Honiton Youth Orchestra website
Rehearsals restart Thursday 6 January 2022
Come and join us
Still looking for new members! We’ve had some former members return to HYO and expressions of interest from new members, but there are planty of chairs to fill. Ordinarily we ask for a termly contribution of £35 towards our running costs (remissions are available) but your first term attending the orchestra is FREE!
Rehearsals restart at St Paul’s Church, Honiton on Thursday 6 January 2022 at 4.30pm (and last until 5.45pm).
We will have some Covid-mitigations in place (ventilation, spacing of participants, spending break time outdoors and extra hand sanitising) but will be able to make music together again!
If you know a child who might like to join us, please get in touch through out ‘Contact us’ page so that we can have appropriate music available.
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.
