Before you apply

Please read all the application information with your parents/carers before applying.

Please check your availability before you apply – orchestras and music groups need every player and instrument to perform all our wonderful music.

We need and expect you to be available for all rehearsals and performances so that all members can have an amazing musical experience.

As you complete your application

  • Please tell us which music group you're applying for. If you're not sure, you can leave this blank. 
  • You can apply for more than one music group however spaces in Suffolk Youth Orchestra will be filled, first.
  • If you're a woodwind or brass player, do you double on another instrument? If not, would you like to learn?
  • If you're aged 18 or over, we do not need your parent/carer's contact details.
  • We reserve the right to offer you a place in a different music group. Please be aware that places on some instruments are limited and this may be necessary to ensure proper musical balance within and between different groups.
