APO Young

APO Young’ is our free fan club for 5-15 year olds. It was the idea of James Taylor, son of APO’s Music Director, Andrew. Inspired by Blue Peter’s engagement with its audience, James decided to approach the APO committee with his idea – who embraced it with enthusiasm!

James said, ‘APO has always welcomed children to its concerts and has held various special educational events over the years, but having a special fan club means we can put on more-regular events to encourage children to enjoy orchestral music. We’ve formed a special crew that James chairs as the APO Young Chair. Older members can get involved in the running of the club, if they like!’

APO Young is free to join and open to children aged 5-15 years old. Members get a goody bag including a membership badge, regular newsletters and invitations to special rehearsal events, as well as discounts on concert tickets and special seat reservations.

APO Young launched in October 2018 with a special members’ event, which was followed by another event during rehearsals for our May 2019 concert.
