Premier Ensembles

Premier Ensemble Tasters

From time to time there are opportunities for instrumentalists and vocalists to see what it like to be in one of our Premier ensembles.

The Tees Valley Youth Choir Open Rehearsal is held in September, so that vocalists can come and see how they get on, and whether they might like to join one of the foremost youth choirs in the country.

Instrumentalists who have reached a certain standard are invited to rehearse and perform alongside the Tees Valley Youth Big Band, Brass Band, Orchestra, Wind Orchestra and Yangchin.

‘Tees Valley Youth’ Premier Ensembles

These ensembles are for more advanced students from across the Tees Valley area who audition for membership. They perform at major venues, both nationally and internationally and are regularly invited to participate in the National Festival of Music for Youth and the School Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. For more information, please contact the TVMS – Music Education Hub or call (01642) 603600.
