Gloucestershire Youth String Orchestra (GYSO)

Gloucestershire Youth String Orchestra (GYSO) is the county’s largest orchestral string ensemble. The group is comprised of string players from Gloucestershire Youth Orchestra (GYO) and Gloucestershire Intermediate String Ensemble (GISE) creating a number of players that are able to tackle larger scale string works.

Rehearsals for this ensemble take place once a term with performance opportunities throughout the year in Gloucestershire’s most prestigious venues.

2020 saw the ensemble tackle Barber's expressive Adagio for Strings whilst the 2021 programme will be Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings.

Membership of this group is free if you are a member of GYO or GISE – please see the GYO and GISE pages for more information or email Nick Steel.
