Next steps to regional and national music ensembles

We support pupils to fulfil their potential as young musicians.

Junior Ensembles lead to membership of the Conwy County Youth Orchestra and/or our Specialist Ensembles including Big Band, Strings, Woodwind and Harp.

Pupils then audition for the regional ensembles, including the North Wales Youth Orchestra, which are managed through a partnership of all six North Wales local authorities.

Nationally, the five Youth Music Ensembles of Wales (Orchestra, Brass Band, Choir, Symphonic Wind Orchestra and Jazz) bring together Wales’ finest young musicians aged 13-21 for intensive courses and superb concerts.
