Upbeat is produced each term by CYM with help from the Friends of CYM, published on the CYM website at https://fym.org.uk/fym.org.uk/news/ and emailed to the CYM community.

Upbeat gives an overview of the activities of CYM, LYWB (London Youth Wind Band) and LSSO (London Schools Symphony Orchestra), we try to cover all the departments and activities and keep you informed of upcoming events. Its other purpose is to build awareness of CYM and its activities in the wider community.

We are always looking out for volunteers to help produce Upbeat. If you have relevant skills (editing, writing, proofreading, photography) and are keen to be involved with the editorial team please email friends@cym.org.uk and we’ll be in touch. Students are also encouraged to contribute to Upbeat.

Until Spring 2020 Upbeat was produced as a termly printed magazine, you can read back issues at the links below, and you can find out more about the evolution of the newsletter here
