Welcome to the Watford Youth Sinfonia website! The Watford Youth Sinfonia was founded in 2014 by artistic director and conductor, Daniel Hogan and hosts concerts termly every year. Find out more about the orchestra on the About Us page.

Mahler 4 was my first concert with WYS nearly four years ago, and that concert was one of the things that really confirmed I wanted to be a professional musician.

Watford Youth Sinfonia is such a rewarding orchestra to play in. The best thing about playing in this orchestra is playing under Daniel’s baton, and seeing his passion and deep understanding of what he is doing. His hard work is inspiring.

Playing with the WYS is unlike most orchestras I play in. There’s a really friendly atmosphere, and at the heart of it everyone is having a great time playing some of the most amazing music there is.
