PYO Uniform 

PYO uniform is as follows: white shirt, PYO tie and black shoes with either black trousers (no jeans or leggings) or skirt/culottes in PYO Douglas tartan with black/navy/skin coloured tights.  

If you are playing in the August concerts but are not coming back to PYO in the autumn, and if you do not have a PYO skirt or black trousers, then a school skirt is fine. 

If you do not yet have a PYO tie, please email Susannah Rae on and she will arrange for one to be provided at the first rehearsal back after the holidays. 

Material for skirts/culottes is provided free of charge. If you would like to have your skirt/culottes made for you, Jackie Lumsden can make one for £15. For material or to have a skirt made, please contact Jackie on 07432671548. If you are planning to ask Jackie to make a skirt, it would be really helpful if you could order it before the new term so that she doesn’t have too many orders all at once when new members join PYO. 

Thursday 25 August 2022: Edinburgh Festival, Greyfriars Kirk

The money will be collected by Andrew Mitchell from the PYO Committee who is organizing the outing. If you have any diet requirements, please let Andrew Mitchell know when making the payment. This is a lovely social event for all the orchestra that is always greatly enjoyed.
