Hackney Borough Youth Orchestra brings together the most advanced players from across the borough and provides them with an opportunity to learn challenging and exciting repertoire from a diverse range of genres/composers from all around the world, supported by an exceptional team of HMS tutors.

  • Hackney Borough Youth Orchestra is open to players in Year 7 and above
  • Applicants must be of Grade 5 standard or higher. Applicants need not necessarily have taken a Grade 5 exam but should be able to play and sight-read to the level expected for Grade 5 players
  • Exceptions to the minimum age/standard rule are occasionally made if we have a shortage of a particular orchestral force or due to other exceptional circumstances
  • HBYO applicants are invited to attend a friendly audition / trial session before being offered a place in the orchestra
  • Applicants must either live in the borough of Hackney or attend a Hackney school
  • HBYO may also accept ‘associate members’ from neighbouring boroughs in certain circumstances, please get in touch for more information
