Yorkshire Wind Orchestra are thrilled to be partnering with Calderdale Music to offer young woodwind and brass players an opportunity to play and perform with the Orchestra.  

On Saturday 5th November, we will host a workshop for students from the Calderdale region, followed by a joint performance to an audience of family and friends.  

The event will take place at Calderdale Music’s base at The Old Courthouse, Blackwall, Halifax Town Centre, HX1 2DL. The workshop is suitable for pupils grade 2 standard and above, with parts specially created to suit developing performers as well as more advanced musicians. There is no charge to pupils for taking part in this workshop. There will be a small charge for tickets to watch the performance at the end - more details will be provided to parents of pupils who sign up to take part.

13:30 - 16:00        Workshop (with breaks)

Calderdale Music’s café will be open from 10am serving food and hot and cold drinks.

To take part in the workshop, each pupil must sign up through the Calderdale Music website.
