Information for members

County Youth Orchestra


Congratulations on being awarded a place in one of the Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust's award-winning county music and drama groups.

On this page you will find the information you need for the beginning of the year. Some of this needs your attention now and some is for your information.   

Information which needs to be completed and returned

Please use the secure web-link provided with your audition results email to check the information we hold about you and your child on our iPresto database and add any important emergency contact and medical information which we may need to know.

As a registered charity we can now access Gift Aid on your membership subscription fees into the future. If you feel you can support us in this way and have not done this before, please download, sign and return a Gift Aid declaration, or click the confirm button on your iPresto home page. You only need to do this once, however, you do need to complete a new form if you change your name or address.

Information regarding dates and times

All rehearsals take place at the Kettering Road Music and Arts Centre​ in Northampton.

Information regarding fees and subscriptions

To reduce costs our preferred method of payment is online via ParentPay. New users will receive log-in information by post within a few days of the audition results. Other payment methods are listed on the website.

For those with significant bills, you can still pay by standing order. Please request a standing order form from the office.
