The West Wiltshire Youth Orchestra is a full sized symphony orchestra, made up of strings, woodwind, brass and percussion.  Players in the group are normally secondary school age and stay with us until they leave school at the age of 18. We play a wide variety of music including standard orchestral repertoire as well as film and popular music.
