The Friends of the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra
The principal objective of the charity is to assist in the musical education of students at schools and colleges in Hampshire by providing financial support to the
- Hampshire County Youth Orchestra
- Hampshire County Youth Chamber Orchestra
- Hampshire County Youth String Orchestra
This support is only given for events, projects and expenses which are not normally funded byHampshire County Council. In particular, the Friends contribute to the cost of residential training courses and orchestra overseas tours to reduce parental contributions and ensure that opportunities are open to all. The Friends also help by giving grants to the orchestras for instruments, commissioning of new works, soloists and workshops.
Music Hub Champion Andrew Lloyd Webber says
- “I have been impressed for many years by the talented youngsters that Hampshire produces."
