Welcome to the Hyderabad Youth Ensemble!
Hyderabad Western Music Foundation invites you to participate in the 4th season of the Hyderabad Youth Ensemble.
The ensemble is made up of mainly young musicians (no age limit) from around the twin cities who play string, wind or percussion instruments and aims to give an opportunity to play in a larger ensemble than they may usually have the chance to.

This 4th season will consist of rehearsals on a Saturday afternoon from 2.30 – 4.00pm at Alliance Française, Banjara Hills
Rehearsals: March 21st, 28th and April 4th and 11th
Concerts: April 11th and 18th (venue to be announced)
Do you play a string, wind or brass instrument at the standard of approximately grade 3 Trinity College/ABRSM/LCM etc. or above? Then you are invited to take part. Fluent notation reading is essential. To participate, attendance at a minimum of 3 out of the 4 weeks will be essential. (Free) registrations for this season of the Hyderabad Youth Ensemble will be required by latest Monday 2nd March.

Note of the main organizer: 'Happy Streets', an initiative led by the HMDA, Hyderabad Police, GHMC and The Times of India with the support of NGOs such as citizen groups like Hyderabad Runners & Hyderabad Cycling Club. This initiative aims to provide better and safer walking and cycling infrastructure throughout all neighborhoods in the city, through active citizen’s engagement. This should help offset increased dependence on motorised transport, reduce congestion and pollution and promote healthy and sustainable mobility. We would like to have Hyderabad Western Music Foundation as one of the partners who could assist us with good western music. As you would be aware Happy Streets is an event for a social cause and connects with masses where we promote fitness, sports, music as major activities and to reclaim the roads.
HWMF gladly accepted this invitation and is part of this wonderful initiative. For the opening on Sunday 8th Feb. we provided Western Classical (Bach, Handel, Mozart) and Jazz standards, played by Abhijit Gurjale (violin), George Hull (saxophone) and Joe Koster (keyboard).
