10th Anniversary Celebration Concert

Saturday 2nd July 2022

Christ Church, Skipton

Skipton Community Orchestra was set up in 2012 and so this year marks its 10th anniversary.

To celebrate the occasion, we are planning  a “Sounds of the Movies” celebration concert, featuring many of the orchestra’s favourite pieces from over the years.

An ensemble from Skipton Music Centre and The Skipton Choir will also be making an appearance and there will be a bar, popcorn and cake!

The concert will be free entry although there will be a collection in aid of Dementia Forward, a local charity supporting people living with dementia and their families.




We have performed at a range of local venues and events over the years, including Grassington Dickensian Festival, 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!
