music centres

The centre gives me an opportunity to develop my skills of playing in an orchestra, as well as meeting and making friends with other musicians. There is a great atmosphere and a feeling that you are part of something special. 


Manchester String Orchestra (MYSO), and Manchester Youth Soul Choir rehearse at Xaverian College in Rusholme on a Monday evening.
Manchester Youth String Orchestra is open to anyone aged 11-18 who is at least grade 4 level on a string instrument. There is no entry audition and we aim to develop ensemble skills by working on a wide range of music in a friendly environment.
The NEW youth Soul Choir runs from 5pm – 6.30pm. We would like to invite you to join us for an autumn vocal project and Christmas Celebration – we will be running singing workshops working towards a Christmas Musical Celebration on December 14th at Holy Innocents Church in Fallowfield. The vocal director will be Carla Ellington, accompanied by Michael Mukiibi.
