Directors: Graham Mann, Nigel McDonald
Grades 6 and above
Affectionately known as ‘MYWO’, this large and well-known ensemble represents our senior wind, brass and percussion players. The repertoire is advanced and therefore the grade standard generally required is 6 to 8.
Concert dress for Maidstone Youth Wind Orchestra:
Men: black long-sleeved shirt, trousers, socks and shoes, MYMS tie (£10 each – from MYMS)
Ladies: black sleeved top and trousers, or skirt (knee-length or longer), black tights and black shoes
