Highland Regional Music Groups
There are EIGHT Regional Music Groups, run as an extension to the work of the Instrumental Tuition Service in Highland. Membership for all the groups is by audition / invitation after an annual Audition Day and members are drawn from all areas of Highland.
Highland Regional Youth Orchestra (HRYO)
Highland Schools Wind Band (HSWB)
Highland Youth String Orchestra (HYSO)
Highland Youth Big Band (HYBB)
‘snas (ceilidh band)
Còisir G (Regional Gaelic choir)
Highland Youth Pipe Band (HYPB)
Highland Youth Choir (HYC)
Regional Groups provide an ideal extension to the many school and area groups which already exist. They are an ideal opportunity for members to make friends amongst many of the 3000 Highland pupils who receive tuition in our schools whilst promoting a high standard of musicianship. Many members of Highland Regional Music Groups are also members of national instrumental & vocal ensembles.
Due to the nature of Highland geography, the groups meet for intensive rehearsal weekends rather than weekly practices. There are normally two rehearsal weekends before December each year then a third which involves a performance. This pattern is repeated between January and April. Performances are given in a variety of Highland venues and are widely advertised.
There is also a history of Regional Groups performing in other areas of Scotland, and abroad. The Groups are sometimes available for corporate and charity events although this depends on costs and logistics - enquiries can be made to Norman Bolton.
All the Regional Groups are grateful for the continued support of The Friends of Highland Young Musicians. This group of supportive parents provide practical assistance at Concerts when required and continue to seek much-needed sources of finance for the replacement of instruments, equipment and the subsidy of a number of the Groups’ activities.
More details of any of the Groups, or more information about performances can be obtained from Norman Bolton, Highland Council’s Music Development Officer on 01349 863441 or at: email@example.com
