During 2017 NYOS Junior Orchestra perform an array of exhilarating and horizon broadening compositions inspired by the Americas. Within this theme we will present a broad spectrum of classical through to contemporary repertoire from both American composers, with music rarely heard in UK or European concert halls, together with more prominent European composers inspired to write works celebrating the greatest of continents.

Conductor Holly Mathieson once again takes charge of NYOS Junior Orchestra for its concert this summer at Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. Holly has been working with the Junior Orchestra for the past two and half years and during this time she has inspired our youngest instrumentalists to perform beyond themselves. Holly and the Junior Orchestra will be joined by cellist Findlay Spence to perform Dmitry Kabalevsky’s Cello Concert No. 1. Findlay was Principal Cello with NYOS Symphony Orchestra in 2016 and was a stand-out performer during the sell-out BBC Prom at the Royal Albert Hall in August that same year.
