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.
NYO Inspire Days take place across the country for teenagers playing at Grade 6-8+ and participation is free.

NYO Inspire provides orchestral opportunities to musicians who are underrepresented in the sector, which is why applications are only open to musicians who are state educated or home-schooled or Black and minority ethnic (BME) musicians. NYO Come and Play activities are open to all musicians aged 13-19 and playing at Grade 4-8+ standard. To find out more about NYO Come and Play, click here.
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.
By taking part in NYO Inspire activity, you will automatically be considered for NYO Inspire Orchestra.
