Welcome to the web site of the Nottingham Youth Orchestra - one of the country's top orchestras for young people.

Valencia RehearsalsThere are in fact six orchestras - Training, Intermediate, Youth and Jazz with almost 300 young people involved at all stages of musical ability. Each of the orchestras regularly gives public concerts in and around Nottingham. The Youth Orchestra is well known for the high standard of music and each summer undertakes a tour somewhere in the world. The Jazz Orchestra regularly goes on tour in August to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

See the Concerts page for full details.

Training Orchestra WoodwindsFounded in 1985 the orchestras aim to encourage young people to play to the best of their ability and professional tutors lead each orchestral section. Weekly rehearsals are an important part of learning together along with an annual residential weekend which is both musically intensive as well as good fun. We rehearse at the Becket School in West Bridgford NG2 7QY Thursday evenings during term time (Tuesdays for the Jazz Orchestra).

Please browse through this site which we hope will give you a flavour of what being a member of the orchestra is like, read our mission statement and contact us for more details.
