NYO Inspire Day


NYO Inspire Day is your chance to take your playing to the next level and get that breakthrough orchestral experience. 

Spend an immersive day in workshops and rehearsals, focused on peer learning and sharing with NYO Musicians. Through this open exchange, you’ll develop your ensemble playing skills and explore ways of listening, while experiencing the joys of orchestral music-making in a friendly and creative environment. You’ll then showcase what you’ve learned in a performance for family and friends. 

So, if you’re aged 13-19 and playing at Grade 6 or above, you will be eligible to apply. 

How to Apply

Applications for our next NYO Inspire Day, which takes place on 24 March, have now closed, however we are accepting late applications from oboe, bassoon, horn, bass trombone, tuba and double bass players. If you play one of these instruments, please click here to apply.

Applications for NYO Inspire Days open two months before each project. Applications for our NYO Inspire Day on 20 July will open on 20 May at 11am.

Please note that 20% of places have already been allocated through the NYO Inspire 2019 recruitment process which took place in September 2018. If you submitted an application, you will be put forward for all NYO Inspire projects you’re available for and will be allocated a project by December 2018. Please note that there are limited places available, and it is not guaranteed that you will have a place on the programme, but we make every effort to include as many musicians as possible. Please contact inspire@nyo.org.uk if you have any questions.
