Cumbria Music Service

Cumbria Youth Orchestra

Cumbria Youth Orchestra is a group of young musicians of around grade 4-8 standard. We play a huge variety of orchestral music with a young professional conductor, Leon Reimer. Rehearsals are supported by our team of specialist professional tutors.

Join us to discover the excitement of creating live music with other young musicians. If you want to perform in a variety of musical settings, improve your ensemble skills and raise the level of your playing we’d love to hear from you.

This year Cumbria Youth Orchestra are working on the Share Sound composition “Out of Darkness” with members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
