The Devon Youth Wind Orchestra (DYWO) makes a return to the Festival. This is a symphonic wind orchestra for students aged between twelve and twenty-one years from all areas of Devon. Conducted by Steve Grant and organised and administered by the friends of DYWO, we offer a unique opportunity for members to develop their musical education and experience within a friendly and welcoming environment. Membership includes up to ten gathering days a year; a residential weekend and the option to take part in biannual national and international tours. DYWO is open to brass, wind and percussion musicians of intermediate and advanced ability. A must see if you enjoy seeing talented youngster’s symphonic harmony.
