Upcoming Opportunities around the City

The National Youth Orchestra (NYO) of Great Britain will be touring to Trinity School in Nottingham and Tuxford Academy in Nottinghamshire in September 2018. It is a great opportunity for secondary school students to engage with the NYO and find out more about them.

NYO welcomes secondary school aged musicians who have taken their grade 1 to 8+ exams, and would like to find out more about playing in NYO.

17 September, 2018 @ Trinity School Nottingham for Nottingham schools

There will be workshops all day from 10:50 AM to 1:50 PM with a break for lunch. NYO will also perform from 2:30 PM to 3:30 PM.

Musicians that participate in this project will have the opportunity to continue their relationship with NYO at a NYO Come and Play event at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham on January 7, 2019 when NYO return to Nottingham.
