National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain Inspire Ensembles Residency

NYO is the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers. Founded in 1948 to provide orchestral performance opportunities for the brightest and most committed musicians between the ages of 13 and 19 and with an average age of just 16, no other orchestra in the world has consistently achieved such brilliance in performance with such young musicians.

NYO Inspire Ensembles Residency 2017

NYO Inspire Ensembles are 3-day residencies in orchestral family groups: Strings, Winds, Brass and Percussion. They are aimed at improving musical technique and ability by tackling challenging repertoire and exploring ensemble playing. NYO Inspire Ensembles take place at the University of Liverpool and are specifically meant to give musicians, who have limited orchestral opportunities, a high-quality musical experience.

Staff, students and members of the public are warmly invited to the following NYO Inspire Ensembles Sharings of work.
