The NYO adventure is about teenagers from across the UK, representing regions and different backgrounds, making music together.
It’s about community spirit, seeing the best in each other and wanting the best for each other. Everyone contributes to a safe, happy and optimistic community.
Our pastoral Support Team and world class tutors encourage musicians with their expertise and knowledge. When musicians engage in a workshop, rehearse together, create music or perform they have the generous support and trust of the whole NYO community.
Taking on challenges
The adventure is about taking on exceptional musical challenges, sharing a common purpose and working for collective success.
It’s about getting behind the greatest orchestral music of all time, from masterworks to the most cutting-edge new voices, and seeking energy and excitement in musical performance. It’s about trying things out, making music in new ways, and pioneering new presentation of music. And it’s about finding new destinations – new locations, new audiences, and mediums.
Playing their part
We all know that music education is not equally available to all young people across the UK. Our musicians take action to do something about this, taking music and experiences to other young people in concert halls, primary and secondary schools and youth centres.
On the adventure musicians discover they are powerful role models, who can encourage other young people’s musical curiosity and aspirations, and foster understanding, and wellbeing through music.
Sharing teenage voices
The adventure is fuelled by what matters to teenage musicians – the music they make, and the causes they back through the power of orchestral music.
They raise their voices to advocate for young people and their musical opportunities.
