Ensemble Enrolment 2020-2021

Welcome to a new academic year!

To enrol in one of our ensembles, please fill out the enrolment form and make your payments here!

Ensemble Fee Payments

For young people living or studying in the city, the annual cost of joining any RHYO ensemble is £48 (£11 concessions). Please note that you only have to pay one annual fee but can be part of more than one RHYO ensemble.

For young people living AND studying in the county, please note that the annual cost of joining a RHYO ensemble is £90.

New and renewing members for all ensembles (except RHYO) can make their payment online now. New members for RHYO will have a trial period and are requested to hold off on their payments


For anyone who cannot make the payment in full, please speak to Graham Drummond (graham.drummond@nottinghammusichub.org.uk) who will arrange a payment plan with you.

We believe music is for everyone. To make our ensembles and groups accessible for all, we keep our fees as low as possible. Did you know that the actual (average) cost for our music service ensembles is £170 per person/year? This means that every year we have a huge amount to fundraise so that we can keep our programmes running.

New Members

We would love to welcome new members to RHYO, if you are interested in joining please complete the enrolment form and we will be in touch with more information.

We have an informal audition process for new members, after your initial enquiry you may be invited for an online informal audition where you will be asked to play a piece of your choice, and play a piece of our own orchestral music to demonstrate sight reading. Please note that the second part is not necessarily a deciding factor on whether you are offered a place in the Orchestra.

If you are offered a place in the orchestra, you will then start a four week trial so that the tutors can assess how well you are adjusting in the orchestra, while at the same time this gives you an opportunity to see if you like being part of RHYO. At the end of the four week trial, if all parties are happy, then you can enrol fully and your parents/carers will be required to pay the annual membership fee.

If you have any questions, please email us at graham.drummond@nottinghammusichub.org.uk

Please note that RHYO is funded to support young people studying or living within the Nottingham City boundaries and therefore, priority is always given to these pupils.

If you live and study outside Nottingham City, you may still apply, however please note that we may be unable to offer you an opportunity to play in RHYO. In this case, please contact Nottinghamshire Music Hub, the county music hub, which may have more music making opportunities available.
