To be the leading cultural voice of the North and to make classical music accessible to everyone.
When I was a boy in the ‘40s I was a fan of the Yorkshire Symphony Orchestra, going to concerts sometimes twice a week. A lifetime later I am happy to be its Honorary Patron. Orchestras need fans. Come and listen.Alan Bennett
An Orchestra for Yorkshire by Ian McMillan
Yorkshire is an endless symphony anyway
Light shining like brass in the morning air
Wind singing in the woods at the end of the day
With percussion on the beach as you stand and stare
Strings binding the past to the present
And so, here’s to the overture
Of the brand-new Y S O
Come and See Us
We will announce further 2022 performances soon.
