National Open Youth Orchestra

The National Open Youth Orchestra is looking for talented 11-25 year old disabled and non-disabled musicians to join rehearsals in London, Bristol, Birmingham or Bournemouth from September 2020.


They’re particularly keen to receive applications from young disabled people with musical potential: musicians on acoustic or electronic instruments, but also young people using EyeGaze or other assistive technology with a degree of control that could translate to playing an electronic instrument.


Joining this high-profile, pioneering inclusive orchestra is free. Rehearsals are run in partnership with Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning, Bristol Music Trust's National Centre for Inclusive Excellence, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Services For Education, Midlands Arts Centre and Town Hall Symphony Hall.
