The Helix – 2016

YOPs was setup in 2002 under the direction of Ms. Kitty Dalligan, to offer string students the opportunity to play film music, traditional music, popular classics and newly commissioned works.

YOPs now include both a Junior and Senior Orchestra – the Junior Orchestra caters for students aged 7-13 years and the Senior Orchestra for  students aged 11-18 years. Kitty is also proud to offer a limited number of scholarship places to children from School String Projects.

Both Orchestras rehearse mainly on the first Sunday of each month, in the Beechwood Parish Community Centre, 60 Mountain View Road,Ranelagh.
