As part of Wiltshire Music Centre’s 20th Anniversary we are delighted to be taking West of England Youth Orchestra and Wiltshire Youth Jazz Orchestra on tour to the South of France! We aim to give eighty talented, local, young musicians the experience of a lifetime, we will be travelling 900 miles and performing six concerts in stunning venues.
It is important to us that all talented, young musicians who want to be part of this amazing opportunity are able to participate. To make this possible we are raising £15,000 to keep the young people’s fees for the summer course and tour as low as possible.
The Summer Tour will see both orchestras perform separately and together, they will be performing at venues such as Collegiale Notre Dame Des Anges, Abbaye de Frigolet and Place de l’Archeveche.
We have been speaking to some of the members of the orchestras to hear about why they enjoy being part of WEYO or WYJO:
We have also been discussing what the performers are looking forward to about the summer tour:
