Transforming And Enriching Lives Through Music

Calderdale Youth Guitar Ensemble



The Calderdale Youth Guitar Ensemble rehearse on Tuesdays at the Halifax Music Centre (Calderdale Music Trust, Heath Campus, Free School Lane, Halifax) at 6:00pm for an hour.  The Calderdale Youth Guitar Ensemble offers dedicated, talented and enthusiastic young guitarists the opportunity to perform a variety of rich musical materials within a group environment. The CYGE ethos is to develop the young guitarists talents through cognitive musical interaction, where members are encouraged to offer suggestion on arrangement, articulation, and the overall performance of repertoire. The CYGE additionally builds its continued success upon the foundation of a welcoming, friendly and safe environment. The CYGE has a strong reputation of outstanding performance and dedication, both nationally and internationally, and continues to go from strength to strength as the musical and social skills of members are nurtured and encouraged through regular performance.
