Transforming And Enriching Lives Through Music

Calderdale Youth Jazz Orchestra



CYJO rehearse on Tuesday at the Halifax Music Centre (Calderdale Music Trust, Heath Campus, Free School Lane, Halifax) at 5:50pm for an hour.

The CYJO welcomes all brass, woodwind, percussion, guitar and singers but is particularly interested in hearing from saxophones, trumpets and trombones.

Everybody gets an opportunity to improvise to music (make up your own tune on the spot!) This video show some of our young musicians (guitar then saxophone) making up their solos as they went along!

If you have music lessons with the Calderdale Music Trust you can join any of our music groups for free. If you do not have lessons with the Calderdale Music Trust you can still join - there is a membership fee over £30 per term for the first ensemble and £10 per term for any other ensembles. Please ask the office for an ensemble membership form.
