NYO: Ascent

A trombonist from The National Youth Orchestra holding her trombone in front of a skyscape background

Hear a new generation get behind the greatest orchestral music of all time – experience an exhilarating adventure in sound with The National Youth Orchestra.

Witness hundreds of musicians evoke the wildest of storms and ascend to awesome mountain heights with music by Dani Howard, Debussy and Strauss, composers whose sense of drama, colour and musical joy is irrepressible.

When musicians are yet to find their limits audiences witness unforgettable, unbridled daring and talent. Play your part in the extraordinary and join the audience at The National Youth Orchestra.
