CPYE was set up in 2012 and is run by a voluntary committee of parents.
Our aim is to provide a platform for the regions musical youngsters to come together, play, enjoy and perform music. To be part of the junior ensemble each participant must be at least a Grade 1 level or equivalent and have enthusiasm and commitment to work with other youngsters of all ages. The junior ensemble provides the children with a fun introduction to the skills required to play together before moving onto the senior ensemble who perform more challenging material.
CPYE is very lucky to be led by 2 dedicated musicians Katherine Birtles and Dave Parsons. Each have many years of experience on their instruments and aim to motivate and pass on their passion to the students. There are currently around 35 members of CPYE who come from a variety of schools in the area. CPYE gives young musicians an opportunity to make new friends with others with similar interests and create great music.
