Hackney Borough Youth Orchestra Application Form (minimum Grade 5 standard)
HBYO is led by an experienced HMS Conductor and a team of Sectional Tutors. We play a range of exciting and diverse repertoire, from classical to contemporary, from film scores to musical theatre, including music written by culturally diverse composers. The orchestra is a progression route for Hackney's advanced (Gr5+) instrumentalists who wish to increase their orchestral experience and represent their schools by performing at a borough level. HBYO perform regularly - venues include the Hackney Empire, Round Chapel, Shoreditch Town Hall and by invitation to many other special events. HBYO meets on Tuesdays, 6pm at Bridge Academy.

£35 per term for students who attend a Hackney School
£45 for students that live in Hackney but attend an out of borough school
£15 concession places are available for all pupil premium students (verified by school)

Please submit this application form to join us, or get in touch for any further information! Players will be invited to attend an informal and friendly audition / trial session once applications have been received.
