We know everyone is very keen to get CBYO and other musical ensembles back rehearsing now that Schools are resuming so we just wanted to provide an update.

CBYO as part of the City of Belfast School of Music is administered by Education Authority (EA).

EA are following a ‘Restart Plan’ that aligns with the Northern Ireland Executive’s five step plan. This Restart Plan will determine exactly when EA buildings will reopen to staff and the general public and therefore when lessons and group activities such as CBYO can restart in the City of Belfast School of Music and other Music Centres across the province.

We hope to have further information by the end of August. CBYO Manager Robert Briscoe, will communicate this to current CBYO Members and new applicants once available.

Rest assured we are working very hard behind the scenes, to ensure everything is ready to go for our new season as soon as we get the go ahead! We also have Covid secure contingency plans in place,including alternative rehearsal venues, should our previous rehearsal space at CBSM not be available.

Please keep checking in here and on our official CBYO Facebook page for further information....The best is yet to come!
