NYO Open Events

The National Youth Orchestra is coming to London. If you are a local musician aged 11-18 (KS3 or above) and play an instrument at Grade 3 level or above, come and join a FREE creative day of music making. You don’t need to have taken any graded exams and you also don’t need to play an orchestral instrument to take part.

Join our super friendly community to explore music, get creative and have fun playing together. You’ll be amazed at how easy it becomes to make music with new people and play your part in creating a new piece with other teenagers. At the end of the day, you’ll perform this new music as part of a foyer performance ahead of the Orchestra’s performance at the Barbican Centre!

Following this creative activity, we encourage you to stay and be among the audience to experience NYO Ascent at 7pm in the Barbican Hall. Tickets are Free for Teens.
