Fly High with Nottingham Youth Orchestra!

Young musicians find their playing takes off when they join Nottingham Youth Orchestra. Sight-reading, instrumental and listening skills improve hugely each year, and youngsters keep coming back for more. Ask them for their highlights, and top of the list are the friendships made alongside break-time cakes, the ever popular weekly tuck shop, an exclusive NYO ice cream van visit, plus residentials and musical trips out.

NYO is having a FREE fun & friendly Taster Evening on Thurs 17th October 2019 (18.30-19.30) at The Becket School, West Bridgford  NG2 7QY. Interested young musicians will get a chance to play Camila Cabello's Havana with Training Orchestra (Gds 2-4 standard) or take to the skies playing How To Train Your Dragon  with Intermediate Orchestra (Gds 5-7).

Last academic year over 200 talented youngsters in NYO's 3 orchestras and 2 jazz orchestras experienced 50 pieces of music. This meant NYO's 25 dedicated instrumental tutors and five professional conductors handled a library of nearly 3000 individual sheet music parts! In the same period, more than 2000 people saw NYO's concert hall performances ranging from Stravinsky to Glen Miller and Disney hits, plus a world premiere. No wonder Nottingham Youth Orchestra comes "highly recommended" by both parents and members.
