Berkshire Youth Guitar Orchestra (BYGO)
Conducted by Steve Christmas and Abigail Newton.
BYGO is a very simple concept: bring together the best classical guitarists in the area to play music, have fun and perform at the very highest level. It has a growing national reputation for high standards, professionalism and level of performance, and has won praise from international guitarists.
BYGO made their debut at Newbury International Spring Festival performing with Craig Ogden. It has performed at the prestigious Wigmore Hall in London, Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, and has performed for the Queen. In addition to a busy concert schedule, it has toured to China, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and Belgium.
Rehearsals take place at Reading Music Centre between September and April, rehearsing on a Monday night from 6.45pm to 9.00pm. During the summer term, rehearsals take place once a month, usually on Sundays, to allow students time to focus on exams.
