The EYOa is an association for ex-members of the Essex Youth Orchestras to keep in touch. We organise social events, concerts, and produce a newsletter with EYO-related news. We are not the Essex Youth Orchestra, and are not as well placed to advise on membership, courses and concerts as is Essex County Council (best contact: Andrew Coles, Ensembles Manager for Essex Music Services; he can be emailed at Andrew.Coles@essexcc.gov.uk). The EYO now seem to have a website, which can be found here
In case you found this page via a web search, and you don't know there's a mailing list, then news: there's a mailing list. Send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit this page in order to sign up.

To join the association, fill out the membership form and send it to the secretary with your subs (minimum £5 per year, more is appreciated where possible). There's also a standing order form which you could print out and send to your bank instead of sending us a cheque. This is a lot less trouble for you and for us, but the choice is yours.
