CYO perform in Loggia Dei Lanzi, on Piazza Della Signoria, Florence, July 2012

Festival of Youth Orchestras 2012

Been there, done that, what a memory

We hope that all that travelled on the CYO Concert Tour to Italy had a great time. It was a tour that will live long in our memory, the concert in Montecatini in the fantastic Terme Tettuccio. The concert in Piazza Duomo in San Gimignano, but the highlight had to be the spectacular concert in the Loggia De Lanzi (on the main square in Florence [Piazza De Signoria]) in front of an estimated 2,000 people who gave the Cork Youth Orchestra, under its inspiring conductor Tomas McCarthy,  a standing ovation and would not stop until the orchestra performed an encore, then cheered the orchestra as they left the stage until the final player had departed. Check out and like our Facebook page for loads of photos and videos. Well done to all involved, players, our conductor, soloist Flaithri Neff,  guest players, supervisors, logistics, doctors,and anyone else who helped to make this the best such a memorable Concert Tour.

Announcement of CYO trip to Italy, and CCC's support

CYO in the papers

Evening Echo article about our Concert in the City Hall on the 30th June, and our trip to Italy the following week

Taking a full orchestra of 120 players to a festival in Italy is no small task. Not only will we have the arrangements of getting the players to Italy, accomodation, transport, meals, not to mention rehearsals and concerts. We will also will have two large refrigerated vans departing before the group with the larger instruments, percussion equipment, and a large amount of other logistical equipment which is needed for a fully functional orchestra. The total cost of this trip is in the region of €150,000. We are delighted to announce that the Cork County Council have agreed to provide a substantial grant to help the orchestra on this trip. We are very grateful for their assistance, County Manager Tim Lombard, and Cllr John Collins recently joined the orchestra for a photo to announce this support. We are delighted that Cllr John Collins will travel with the Orchestra to Italy to meet with local Council officials in Florence, San Gimignano, and Montecatini with a view to develop links and  relations with these areas. The Cork Youth Orchestra will truly be flying the flag for Cork and Ireland at the European Festival of Youth Orchestras !!!!
