This is an intermediate string ensemble for players between grade 2 and grade 5 standard.  The orchestra is made up of pupils from primary and secondary schools in the North Wiltshire area.


We enjoy playing a variety of music: classical, popular, film, traditional and seasonal. Recent repertoire has included arrangements of works by Mozart and Vivaldi, music from Phantom of the Opera and Pirates of the Caribbean and popular songs such as Pretty Woman.


Members when ready will be invited to join the West Wiltshire Youth Orchestra

Grade standards are a guidline to help parents select the most appropriate group.  Students progress to the next level on the recommendation of their current conductor.  Conductors liaise to make these decisions taking into account the musician's age, ability and ensemble skills and whether vacancies exist.
