Upcoming events for 2019:

Learn to Play Day: Sunday 24th March,  2-4pm   

Christ Church, Keighley Road,  Skipton (inside the church)


Following the success of last year’s event, Skipton Community Orchestra will be hosting a Learn to Play Day event for people of all ages to come along and try out a musical instrument.

Wide range of musical instruments to try.

With local music teachers – guitar, flute, clarinet, piano, violin.

And an open orchestra rehearsal – anyone can come along and have a go at playing in a group.  We will tackle one of the BBC Ten Pieces arrangements (tbc).

Activities for young children

And all completely free of charge!


Saturday 15th June: Buckden Gala

Sunday 23rd June: The Great Get Together Picnic Aireville Park (time tbc)

Sunday 7th July: Summer Concert Holy Trinity Church,  2pm

We have performed at a range of local venues and events over the years, including Grassington Festival in the Square, Buckden Gala, Celebrate Craven, Skipton Library, Christ Church School, Holy Trinity Church, Cliffe Castle, Keighley, Aireville Park Community Picnic.

We never charge for our performances as we strongly believe that everyone should have the opportunity to listen to live, orchestral music. Our performances are very informal and are particularly suitable for young children, often with percussion instruments to join in with and an opportunity to try out instruments afterwards.

If you would like us to play at a community event, please do get in touch. We usually need a few months’ notice to make sure that sufficient players are available and to give us some time to practise!
