Summer 23 Concert features Scholarship Winner as Soloist!

Each year, NYO awards The Needham Scholarship to a senior orchestra player. As well as financial support, the winner is given the opportunity to perform as soloist with the senior NYO in the July concert.

In 2022 NYO welcomed back one of our old friends, ex-leader Elizabeth Bratton, to play the dazzling Bruch Violin Concerto. Due to the pandemic Lizzie, who was our 2019 Needham Scholarship winner, did not get the chance to perform, so it was a pleasure to hear her play the ever popular Bruch concerto in front of an appreciative audience.

We look forward to seeing what summer 2023 brings!
