Drum roll please… we’re very excited to announce that we are now Classic FM’s Orchestra of Teenagers.
We’re teaming up with the radio powerhouse to inspire a new generation of young people to classical music, expanding our total orchestral brilliance to an even bigger audience.
To celebrate, our musicians Deronne White (flute) and Ermos Chrysochos (violin) took over the Classic FM studio today. With typical NYO enthusiasm and instruments in hand, they met radio presenter John Suchet, adventured around, and got a snazzy behind-the-scenes tour.
For more information about our partnership, check out our press release. Make sure to tune in to Classic FM today to catch recordings of NYO alumni. And as an added treat, there will be a major feature on us on the David Mellor programme this Sunday at 7pm.
Here are some snapshots from Deronne and Ermos'day at Classic FM.
