An annual summer course for advanced instrumentalists aged 16 to 26 from across the globe, offering challenging symphonic and chamber repertoire.


After a successful launch in 2018, find out more about our successes and future plans for our Refugee Choirs.


Our Community Choirs are brand new with our first venture in Famalicão, Portugal with the local community performing with the EYMW Orchestra.


During the 50th anniversary of EYMW in 2022 we are inviting our previous members to join us at Oakham School, England for our special celebration!


Originally, the Anglo German Youth Music Week, ran just over 30 years before becoming European Youth Music Week.

The Rochford Ensemble met annually in the Welsh border town of Hay-on-Wye, usually in the first weekend of October for a full weekend of orchestral music making with members of the music week orchestras, both past and present.  The concert was part of the Hay-on-Wye Music Festival and provided the opportunity to rehearse and perform together; a well-regarded social occasion by all involved.

The Rochford Ensemble continued until 2016, with the final concert lead by the original founder of the Anglo German Youth Music Week, Jeff Babb at the age of 89, and current Director of Young Orchestras and EYMW conductor Keith Horsfall.
