Where are your venues?
Our venues can vary but are all located within Durham Region.
How often do you practice?
Rehearsals are generally twice a week for strings and once a week for woodwinds, brass and percussion. Although, woodwinds, brass and percussion should be prepared to rehearse twice a week as determined by the music director.
Why is there a membership fee?
As an independent charitable organization, the Durham Youth Orchestra depends on membership fees, ticket sales, donations and other fundraising efforts to generate funds. These funds are used to pay for venue fees, insurance, masterclasses, scholarships, equipment needs, soloists and other operational expenses that are necessary to keep the orchestra going. We also depend on hundreds of volunteer hours by parents, friends and board directors to minimize expenses. Everyone does their part.
