NYO Inspire Ensembles – Brass, Percussion, String Ensembles

  • 10th February 2018 - 12th February 2018
  • University of Liverpool

NYO Inspire Ensembles are 3-day residencies in orchestral family groups – Strings, Winds, Brass and Percussion – that explore challenging repertoire and ensemble playing techniques.

Devised and led by NYO Tutors, the project encompasses a wide range of playing techniques to develop your musicianship further. This Inspire Ensemble residency is for Brass, Percussion and Strings.

NYO Inspire Ensembles is specifically targeted to musicians who have limited orchestral opportunities to access further orchestral opportunities. We also target musicians who are underrepresented in NYO and the professional orchestra sector from state education and those from BAME backgrounds.


Applications to take part in the NYO Inspire Ensemble are part of the annual recruitment drive which takes place from mid-September to October half term each year.
