Brighton Youth Orchestra String Ensemble
This string ensemble is one of the ensembles of Brighton and Hove Music and Arts. Formed by Andrew Sherwood in 1994.
They were proud last year to perform for Nick Gibb (Minister for Schools) in London at Parliament as part of an advocacy campaign by the National Federation of Music Services.
This year they shared a performance with the Trinity Laban String Ensemble - which still happened despite deep snow and most of the players and audience had to walk to the venue as transport had broken down.
The ensemble works collaboratively with the University of Brighton. One of their best known fans is Bob Hoskins who fondly refers to it as ‘my band’.
Conductor: Andrew Sherwood
Age range of performers: 14 - 18 years
