Taking Part

The orchestra has made an excellent start and we are now looking to recruit additional members. Our entry requirements are simple - we are looking for enthusiastic young musicians who play an orchestral instrument, ideally at Grade 3 or above. But we also welcome less advanced players who love playing music and would like to get involved. Indeed, if you haven't yet started to play an instrument why not come to one of our rehearsals to listen and speak to one of our team who may be able to help you to find a teacher or an instrument that you'd like!

Travelling Expenses

We are delighted to say that we have been awarded a grant from the Holywood Trust to whom we are very grateful.  An important part of our application was seeking funds to be able to recompense travel expenses.  We want to make access to DGYO activities inclusive and equitable for young musicians from the whole of Dumfries & Galloway and we are very well aware that it costs a lot in fuel and time for folk coming from Stranraer or Langholm, for example, to a more central location such as Castle Douglas or Dumfries.
