MUSICAL youngsters are being invited to find out what it takes to join an orchestra on Saturday, June 21.

Cheshire Youth Orchestra and Cheshire Youth Training Orchestra are holding an open morning for interested youths and their parents at Mid Cheshire College, in Hartford, from 10.30am to 1pm.

The orchestras meet at the college on Saturday mornings during term time with six rehearsals and one concert each term.

Musicians need to be at around Grade Three standard to join the training orchestra and around Grade Six to join the youth orchestra.

There are also groups for beginners to Grade Three.

The orchestras, sponsored by Oakmere Motor Group, regularly tour in the UK and abroad – recent trips have included the Isle of Man, Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands.

There are also social events, such as bowling and concert trips.
