National Youth Orchestra Opportunity

On Saturday 6 January, 14.30 – 17.45 Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry the National Youth Orchestra is coming to Coventry.

Local musician aged 11-18 (KS3 or above) and play any instrument at Grade 3 level or above, are invited to come and join a FREE creative day of music making. You don’t need to have taken any graded exams and you also don’t need to play an orchestral instrument to take part.

Join our super friendly community to explore music, get creative and have fun playing together. You’ll be amazed at how easy it becomes to make music with new people. Taking inspiration from the Orchestra’s concert programme, you’ll play your part in creating a new piece with other teenagers. At the end of the day, you’ll perform this new music in a free sharing performance for your family and friends.

If you’d like to take part in this NYO Open Event, please sign up through this google form HERE by Wednesday 20 December. 

Following this creative activity, we encourage you to stay and be among the audience to experience The National Youth Orchestra’s Concert: NYO Ascent at 19.30 in Warwick Arts Centre.

Tickets are FREE FOR TEENS (under 19s)! Head to the Warwick Arts website HERE and make sure you select ‘Free for Teens’. Please note that you will sign out after the creative activity at 17.30 ahead of the concert.
