Training Orchestra

The Devon Youth


Our brand new training orchestra welcomes all orchestral instruments (plus Cornets and Euphoniums) and will meet for ten rehearsals per year alongisde our Concert & Symphony Orchestras. 

Participants should be 9 years old and over and Grade 3 standard.


Playing in the orchestra will help young players to develop their ability to work together as an ensemble by exploring light orchestral music and

taking part in fun musical activities.

After spending some time in the Training Orchestra players will be expected to progress to the Concert Orchestra when they reach a suitable standard and

vacancies occur. Concert Orchestra players should be grade 4 standard for most instruments.

The Training Orchestra is directed by Jude Carter, one of our experienced woodwind tutors who leads a range of youth ensembles and is a qualified Primary teacher.
