Challenging and engaging orchestral experience for classical instrumentalists

CCYO has been delighting audiences for many years at events ranging from informal showcases to public performances in prestigious local venues including West Road Concert Hall and the Cambridge Corn Exchange. In recent years, the orchestra has enjoyed working with international soloists and conductors as well as tutors drawn from national orchestras, Cambridgeshire Music and the local teaching network.

If you are a classical musician of Grade 6 level and above, this is the orchestra to aspire to. Students who are working towards Grade 6 may be accepted into the orchestra on the recommendation of their tutor.
