The National Youth Orchestra is coming to Lancaster and seeking young musicians to join in

National Youth Orchestra's NYO Inspire programme

The National Youth Orchestra's free NYO Inspire programme is for teenagers who want to make music, and playing with others, a bigger part of their lives and is aimed at promoting equality in music education, prioritising those with the greatest need for a place.

This October, the National Youth Orchestra is bringing together the musicians from NYO Inspire and the NYO orchestra for NYO Unite, a series of day long music making activities across the UK. On 28 October, they are heading to Lancaster to work with NYO tutors and conductor, Constança Simas to explor. Aaron Copland’s Rodeo

In partnership with the Lancashire Music Hub, The National Youth Orchestra is also inviting local musicians to get creative and discover new sounds together at an NYO Open event on 28 October. Local musicians aged 11-18 (KS3 or above) and who play an instrument at Grade 3 level or above, will have the chance to explore music and have fun playing together. With the NYO creative team and alumni, they will take inspiration from Copland's Rodeo and play their part in creating a new piece with other teenagers.

The day will culminate in a sharing performance to friends and family, featuring NYO Unite musicians performing Rodeo and the premiere of the new piece created by the young people participating in the NYO Inspire open event.
