Residency Projects

There's more to performing in NYO than sharing the stage in a concert hall. During every Rehearsal Residency our musicians are involved in a variety of exciting opportunities:



Play the city

Inspired by flashmob culture and the fervent belief that classical music is for everyone, our musicians form small ensembles and take to the streets, giving free performances in public spaces - and letting local residents know that NYO is in town.


I love showing the public how enthusiastic NYO are, and the passion and energy we symbolise

Play at Our Place

NYO Musicians and local young musicians pair up to play together in family homes and community centres: a rare chance to hear fantastic chamber music in intimate settings. 

Creative Hub

NYO boasts a section you won't find in any other youth orchestra: our very own composers. During every residency, our musicians form chamber groups to work with our composers to bring their ideas to immediate life. These new works are performed in concert halls and public spaces at the end of the residency.
