This fantastic VLOG was featured on Notts TV! Watch our very own RHYO members talk about the film here (five minutes into the clip).
Exciting Partnerships & Performances
RHYO works closely with many fantastic musicians and venues. See below performances of Fire Track, with incredible tabla player Durgesh Parmar, and Into the Unknown, a collaboration with the Jugendorchester Stadt Karlsruhe, the youth orchestra from Karlsruhe, Germany that RHYO has a close partnership with, giving players the chance to travel, rehearse and perform with amazing musicians across Europe.

RHYO is funded for pupils in city schools, and while the orchestra welcomes members from the wider Nottingham area, if there is a shortage of spaces, preference will be given to young people from Nottingham City state schools.
Once you have submitted your online enrolment form, please use the links below to make the fee payment for 2021-22.
For young people who live in the city and/or study in a city state school, the annual cost of joining any music hub ensemble is £54 (£15 concessions). Please note that you only have to pay one annual fee but can be part of more than one Music Hub ensemble (for example, your child may play in RHYO InterConnect as well as Guitar Connect but just pay the ensemble fee ONCE).
For all other young people, please note that the annual cost of joining a music hub ensemble is £110.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss alternative payment options.
