Calling WYO Alumni!

WYO is seventy five years old this year! As part of the celebrations we are inviting former members to come and join us to play for our summer concert on Saturday 24 June 2023 in Kendal Parish Church. We will be performing favourite pieces and commissions from over the WYO’s history as well as the winning composition from our anniversary competition for young people.


We are hoping to see alumni from across the WYO’s history.


Further information:

  • If you would like to join us for the concert we are asking that you commit to attend at least one Friday night rehearsal (7 - 9.30pm) at Castle Street during the course of the term (this can include the night before the concert) as well as the rehearsal on the day of the concert. If at all possible we would like to know which date(s) you intend to join us so that Fredrik can plan. Dates for the summer term are here

  • The exact timings will be confirmed in due course but provisionally please assume that you will need to be at Kendal Parish Church by 3.30pm on the day of the concert. The performance will start at 7.30pm.

  • Music will be sent out in advance by e-mail. Instructions will be given in advance about what music will need to be printed and what will be provided when you join us.

  • Places are limited in some instruments so please be in touch as soon as possible (and certainly by 31 March) to make sure we can include you. 


We look forward to welcoming you back!
