NYO Inspire Orchestra Day's is coming to Sheffield and want to meet you!

Published on 23/03/2023

NYO are keen to meet more musicians on Sunday 2 April at 11:30am - 6pm at High Storrs School and our goal is to offer a FREE fun and creative opportunity for musicians in the regions where NYO and NYO Inspire activity is taking place.

This NYO Inspire Day will include a series of creative workshops that enable musicians to come together to make music while exploring creativity, ensembles skills and more! Musicians will have a chance to share the music they have created as part of a Sharing performance the end of the day.

As part of this, our goal is to offer FREE creative music-making opportunities to local musicians where NYO and NYO Inspire activity is taking place. This activity is open to musicians aged 11-18 (KS3 or Above) playing at Grade 3 and above level but you don't need to have taken any exams. You also don't need to play an orchestral instrument to participate in this opportunity as the day will be focused on creativity. 

If you are a teenage musician and enjoy making music and exporing your own creative ideas, then we'd like to invite you to take part in a special creative workshop day. Working together with our NYO Music Creative Team of NYO Alumni to devise your very own piece inspired by Danzon No.2 by Arturo Marquez. At the end of the day, you'll have the chance to perform this new piece in a Sharing performance to friends and family as well as hear NYO and NYO Inspire musicians perform as an orchestra the piece you have been inspired by! 

Please note you must be age 11 or above (KS3) to participate in this activity.

To sign up, please complete this form here and further details will be shared with you later in March.
