Devon Youth Wind Orchestra


The Devon Youth Wind Orchestra (DYWO) is a symphonic wind orchestra for students aged between 12 and 21 years from all areas of Devon. DYWO is open to brass, wind and percussion musicians of intermediate and advanced ability. We offer young musicians the opportunity to improve their musicianship, while playing a fun and varied selection of music and making friends.


Playing in an ensemble helps improve skills such as teamwork, listening skills, as well as discipline and self-motivation. We also play at several different events and venues throughout the year, providing valuable performing experience that helps build confidence.

This website has information about everything we do, as well as details on how to join the orchestra or how to contact us. Make sure you take a look at our gallery page for some photos and audio recordings of our recent events!
