Essex Youth Orchestra (EYO) is the flagship ensemble for Essex Music Services, and celebrated its 60th year in 2017. Over the years we have seen many of its players from all over Essex go on to become professionals in the music industry, benefitting from the high standard and opportunities gained from their experience in EYO. EYO’s resident director is Robin Browning and the orchestra play a wide range of classical styles and composers, performing at many different venues across Essex including Saffron Hall and Chelmsford Cathedral.
