National Youth Orchestra Inspire Day

11:00Sheffield Springs Academy

We are delighted to be welcoming the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain to Sheffield for one of their inspire days. On Sunday 22 September the full orchestra will descend on Sheffield Springs Academy where they will lead a day of side by side workshops and performances – it should be amazing! There will be a particular focus on percussion. 

NYO Inspire Day is your chance to take your playing to the next level and get that breakthrough orchestral experience. 

Spend an immersive day in workshops and rehearsals, focussed on peer learning and sharing with NYO musicians. Through this open exchange, you’ll develop your ensemble playing and explore ways of listening whilst sharing the joys of music in a friendly environment. You’ll then showcase what you’ve learned in an informal performance for family and friends.

Percussionists can choose to either join the 120-piece symphonic orchestra exploring Dvorák’s symphonic poem The Noonday Witch, or a percussion ensemble exploring multiple genres with a specialist percussion tutor.

So, if you’re aged 13-19 and playing at Grade 6-8+ sign up now for your free place.
Places are limied so sign up as early as possible.
