DYSO is the intermediate and training level and the second tier of our ensembles.

At this level young musicians explore the popular songs of the Swing Era alongside more complex styles of the modern day Big Band.

Members are encouraged to further enhance their individual soloing skills through improvisation within the band format.

The Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra enjoys its own identity as a driving modern Big Band.

With the accent on ‘swing’, both modern and traditional, this dedicated group of musicians always endeavour to interpret the music as authentically as possible.

Their varied repertoire has delighted audiences on several tours abroad and throughout the north of England.

Rehearsals: Wednesdays from 7pm to 9:30pm
