Welcome to the Honiton Youth Orchestra website
Next Rehearsal: This will be at 4.30pm on Thursday 12 September
This will be an OPEN rehearsal for any children to come along and give HYO a try
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.

NEW for September 2019:
Scratch will be holding their sessions from 4 – 5.30pm in The Crypt at St Paul’s on Thursdays from 12 September. HYO musicians are welcome to come along and take part in the 4 – 4.30pm fun musicianship session before the HYO rehearsal starts. In the Autumn Term 2019 there will be NO CHARGE for this.
[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.]
At the concert on 22nd March 2018 we announced the launch of Scratch! – a new beginners’ orchestra for Honiton and the surrounding area. Head over to their webpage at www.scratchhoniton.wordpress.com for more details.
