The Ealing Youth Orchestra, founded in 1959, celebrated 50 years of music-making in 2009. The orchestra is made up of 84 players aged 13-19 from 31 schools in and around west London. It gives regular concerts in the Ealing, Chiswick and Barnes area. In addition to the London concerts, the highlight of the year is the annual summer tour, which allows the EYO to demonstrate its ability to new audiences and gives the orchestra a chance to work on selected pieces performed during the year in more detail than is possible during weekly rehearsals. Last year, EYO visited Normandy, France and gave concerts in churches in Rouen, Le Neubourg and Lisieux and a final outdoor concert in Honfleur. This summer the orchestra is going on tour to Cracow, Poland.

Ealing Youth Orchestra welcomes new players each autumn. This year there will be vacancies for all instruments especially oboe, French horn, lower brass and double bass. For further information contact Ian Brown,, or come to an Open Rehearsal on Friday 2 July 2010, 6.30 - 8.30pm, at St Martin’s Church, Hale Gardens, Acton W3 9SQ. Auditions will take place at Twyford C of E High School on Saturday 11 September 2010. Bursaries are available in case of financial need for fees and tour costs.
