About the performers and artist

York Symphony Orchestra

Founded in 1898, the YSO is York’s longest standing amateur orchestra. Conducted by Edward Venn and led by Claire Jowett, the York Symphony Orchestra aims to provide amateur musicians with an enriching environment to enjoy and develop their love of classical music, and to share this passion for beautiful music with our friends, families and the local community. We perform three concerts each year – details of future concerts are available on our website. Follow us on Facebook @YorkSymphonyOrchestra and Twitter@SymphonyYork
