Celebrating 25 Years

In November 2019 the Orchestra will reach a
major milestone in that we will be celebrating
25 years of wonderful music.

We are very proud of all our musicians
past and present.



Congleton Youth Orchestra (CYO), first established in 1994, gives young local musicians from Congleton and the surrounding areas an opportunity to learn, play and perform music.

With currently around 100 members CYO has a senior full orchestra and two training groups (strings; woodwind & brass), which all perform together at concerts at least 3 times a year.

The orchestra meets during term time each Saturday morning at Trinity Methodist Church, Wagg Street, Congleton CW12 4BA . All groups are coached by experienced, professional instrumental tutors.

Many past members go on to become professional musicians themselves through music college or university, while others continue to play music as a social activity and hobby.

Joining our Orchestra

The orchestra is open to all musicians between 7 - 25 years.

Already play an instrument ?
Don't currently play an instrument ?

The training groups typically consist of players between grades 1 and 4

The senior orchestra players are grades 4 to 8 (and above)

No formal audition is required to join, however players are assessed on past experience / qualifications during the application process.



You can still join our orchestra !
An Open Day is held each year during the Summer term where children and parents are welcome to come and see what we do.

As part of the day a huge selection of instruments are available to try.

This is a fantastic opportunity for children to express an interest to join the next intake of complete beginners at the start of the following Autumn term.

Membership fees are £25 per term. We also have an instrument loan scheme which is available to all members, subject to availability, and this is included in the membership fee.

Our Application form has recently been amended to comply with the new GDPR regulations Please contact the Secretary using the "Contact Us" if you wish to receive a copy.
