City & County Youth Orchestra (CCYO) and Wind Band (CCYWB)
Auditions for County level ensembles were scheduled to happen in May. Auditions are still planned to take place but will be done via video recordings. The submission date for a recording is 20 May. This is for players of grade 6 standard and above. Any player of the appropriate level is encouraged to apply. If you enjoy playing as part of a large ensemble, this is a fantastic opportunity to perform with some of the most talented young musicians in Derbyshire.
