Membership is by audition only and open to anyone in full time education in Hampshire. Auditions take place during June or July each year. Deadline for application forms is usually at the end of May but please contact us if you have missed the deadline and we will see what we can do. Although the door is always open for young string players who might want to join our String Orchestra half way during the year, places in the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra are limited and we do advise candidates to apply before the deadline.

Applications for auditions to join HCYO for 2018-19 closed on 31st May 2018.  However, please email Carl Clausen (hcyo.director@gmail.com) if you are interested in joining mid-year as there is a chance you could still join.

Please complete the online application form for your audition.  More information about joining  HCYO and the Hampshire Music Service are detailed on the application page.

The open day in 2019 is Saturday 30th March.
