Dulwich Youth Orchestra, the home of holiday music courses for over 40 years, are offering a Christmas course at Dulwich Prep London from 27th – 31st December.

Dulwich Youth Orchestra offers opportunities for orchestral musicians, aged 7 – 18, grade 2 – 8+.

On each course, staff divide the students into various ensembles:

  • String Ensemble
  • Wind Band
  • Symphony Orchestra
  • Senior String Orchestra
  • The Great Orchestra which involves all players

If you live in or around South London, then you’ve come to the right place for holiday music courses. Students come from North and South of the river, from Kent and Sussex and beyond. DYO, established for 40 years, meets for five mornings (9.20 – 1.00) each school holiday and presents a concert on the last day. A limited number of bursaries are available – please contact the administrator for more information. There are no auditions – see the recommended playing standards.

Dulwich Youth Orchestra are most fortunate to benefit from more than twenty highly professional and experienced tutors and to use the extensive facilities at Dulwich Prep London, including the Music School and the wonderful Concert Hall. Please apply as early as possible as courses fill up very quickly and they do not like to turn down children.
