Tour to Lake Garda, Italy
Thursday 23rd August - Friday 31st August 2018

This year, TYO will be heading to the beautiful Lake Garda in Italy, getting the chance to visit the likes of Verona, Venice and the lake itself.

We are also inviting players from the wider community to come and join us on our tour - so if you would like to join us for a week of music, sun and friendship, get in touch now!

Concert tours have been a part of TYO's outlook from the very beginning, and in previous years the orchestra has organised tours to Hungary, Croatia, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia, and most recently, Spain. As well as getting the chance to see some great European cities and play in some truly stunning concert venues, many players come back with the unique social experience of touring Europe with their fellow orchestra members and the positive atmosphere it generates.

Testimonials from previous tours:

"TYO tour really is something every player should experience at least once! The week always has the right balance of great concerts, local culture and free time in the sun! It is the perfect opportunity to enjoy playing fantastic music to audiences abroad with old and new friends ­ I'd recommend it to anyone!" ­ Catherine Hancock

"Beach, Barcelona, Britten, Bernstein and Bass Clarinets. Pretty awesome week really." ­ Tom Nichols
