'An amateur group of around 40 musicians from across Yorkshire who enjoy playing a wide range of music written or arranged for woodwind, brass and percussion (and double bass!). Members of the orchestra take pride in performing to a high standard and in coming together to communicate our music to an audience. Our repertoire includes works written specifically for wind orchestra ... We also play music arranged for wind orchestra ... We play challenging music so, as a guide, potential members should play at approximately at least grade 8 standard, although developing players of a slightly lower standard will be considered in some sections. Ideally you should have some ensemble playing experience ... Recent concerts have included programmes of film music, well-known light classical music and staples of the Last Night of the Proms. The orchestra is a registered charity and, as well as promoting the work of modern composers, is committed to developing young wind and percussion players in the Yorkshire region.'
