Swan Youth Orchestra

Weekend Course

In partnership with the Warwick Schools Foundation & the Warwickshire, Coventry & Solihull Music Services

Swan Youth Orchestra was launched in February 2024, to give school-age musicians across the region an opportunity to take their orchestral playing to the next level.

Our Swan Youth Orchestra members will be tutored and play side-by-side with our professional Orchestra of the Swan musicians, developing students ensemble and performance skills. A Swan Youth Orchestra weekend consists of sectionals, workshops and full rehearsals, concluding with a concert.

Swan Youth Orchestra is aimed at students aged 11-18 at Grade VI level or above, with ensemble experience.

Professional Musicians Involved:

Orchestra of the Swan Tutors:  Victoria Brawn, Martha Ann Brookes, Phil Brookes, Diane Clark, Tim Farmer, Catherine Leech, Jack McNeill, Anthony Thompson, Claire Whitson.
