Devon Youth Symphony and Concert Orchestras (DYSCO)

October 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

The two orchestras provide an opportunity for young musicians from all over Devon to experience orchestral music. Bursaries are available for Torbay students and all students eligible for Free School Meals have their fees paid. Both orchestras rehearse on a roughly monthly basis and can attend a 3 day residential as part of the season. Both orchestras will perform in regular concerts throughout the year along with involvement in local and national events.

The Concert Orchestra is aimed approximately at Grade 4 standard upwards but, if less advanced players are keen and willing to have a go, this shouldn’t be a barrier. There is no audition as players are invited to try it for themselves. The repertoire includes film themes, light classics and any music with appeal to young orchestral players.

The Symphony Orchestra is for Grade 6 standard players upwards plays more demanding music including suitable movements from symphonies, orchestral suites and interesting works from a range of musical periods. Auditions may be necessary for some oversubscribed instruments but the aim is to make these as relaxed as possible.

Kagemusha Taiko

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Established at the end of 1998, we promote taiko drumming in the UK. Based in Exeter, we have three different performing groups who have played nationally and internationally in a wide range of locations, from street and village festivals to major venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Symphony Hall, and even the Milan Fashion Show.

Kagemusha Junior Taiko has been running in Exeter since 1999. More than a group, it’s a youth taiko programme with members age 10-18 coming from schools within a 20 mile radius of the city. Admission is by audition, usually starting in September. Older players have joined the adult Kagemusha Taiko Group.

Kagemusha Taiko

October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment

Our mission is to enrich people’s lives through the experience of taiko drumming.

We create and perform exciting, original repertoire, forging a new style of taiko here in England.

Through our extensive training programmes for young people and adults, we will give taiko a national presence, while enhancing understanding between cultures through international artistic collaboration.

We run public courses and workshops as well as education programmes in schools. We provide teacher training to enable people to start their own taiko groups. We have adult and award-winning youth taiko groups who have performed nationally and internationally, including venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, besides local theatres such as the Corn Exchange, the Barnfield and the Exeter Northcott.
