Cost?:

The annual cost of membership is £295 for the first child in a family, and £235 for each additional child from the same family. Pupils in receipt of Free School Meals are entitled to a 50% discount on fees, while all Looked After Children can attend free of charge. These remissions are supported by the Norfolk Music Hub. 

Membership includes a 3 Day Residential Course and FREE membership to the Norwich Young Voices youth choir. 

Standard of playing?:

The youth orchestra is ‘intermediate’ to ‘advanced’ in standard. That is to say, you should be about Grade 4 when starting the orchestra. In practice this means that we have some members who are not quite at that level (perhaps at about Grade 3) and some who are well above it - even to Grade 8 and diploma standard. Our aim is to accommodate, stretch and encourage all who wish to participate. You do not need to have taken grade examinations to join the orchestra - you just need to be able to play music which is around Gr 4 standard when you join for the first time. If you’re unsure, please get in touch 

Will I need to audition?:

No!
