Trusts & Foundations



Grants from trusts and foundations enable NYO to provide exceptional and transformative musical experiences to our young members and through them, to inspire young musicians and build diverse new audiences nationwide. Trusts and foundations make a real difference by helping us raise the funds necessary to continue delivering a wider cultural value and legacy as the UK’s leading
youth orchestra.




Trusts and Foundations support NYO in the following ways:

•  NYO’s vision and mission to give breakthrough  experiences to young musicians all over the UK

•  NYO Inspire – help fund a place for a grade six musician to experience the splendour of NYO

•  Bursary places – NYO will never turn a musician that passes our auditions away on financial grounds.   Our Trusts and Foundations help us keep that promise

•  A musician from your region – NYO is made up of musicians from all over the UK, help support a local musician

•  Regional activity – support NYO and NYO Inspire activity in your local area

•  Composers – helps support our unique teenage composers course

•  The future of music – bring new music, new commissions, new projects to life with the next generation of orchestra musicians

•  Musician experience – your trust could give a young musician the experience of their lives performing in our nation’s greatest concerts halls, under the baton of Internationally renowned conductors, expert orchestral tutors and above all the opportunity learn and grow together with 164 other outstanding British teenage musicians. 

Please support NYO today.
