NYOS Camerata is the showcase, pre-professional chamber ensemble of NYOS. Successfully bridging the gap between youth orchestra and professional ensemble, it comprises current senior and past members of NYOS Symphony Orchestra.
The ensemble also provides students with invaluable professional development experience to equip them for a career in music. Projects include tutoring, delivering workshops, working within Scottish communities, learning about various genres and working with acclaimed professional musicians.
Membership of NYOS Camerata is by invitation only.

There are no reviews.
It has been a particularly special and rewarding summer for everyone connected with The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS). To think only five years ago we weathered some difficult times, but we fought back hard, reconfiguring and boldly expanding our educational offerings and this summer all that hard work and planning came to glorious fruition.
Joan has been in post for nearly 5 years and the developments under her leadership have included
- Establishing the NYOS Pathway – a clear route of ensembles for young people age 8 – 25 years;
- Overseeing the purchase and refurbishment of the NYOS home;
- Organising a tour of China for NYOS Symphony Orchestra and, most recently
- Having both NYOS Jazz Orchestra and NYOS Symphony Orchestra performing separate concerts at the BBC Proms in London.
Recent graduate, Molly Anne McWhirter, cello, is the third winner of an award that will assist her in fulfilling her aspiration to become a professional musician.
Welcome to our summer season preview containing details of our upcoming concerts from July to October together with booking information and exclusive ticket offers for all our valued mailing list subscribers.

Our fortnight with the Nationaal Jeugd Orkest has sadly come to an end. We had such an amazing time touring the Netherlands and performing in some of its finest halls, from Amsterdam's Muziekgebouw to De Dolen in Rotterdam. At our final concert in De Doelen, we received a mighty 1700-person audience and standing ovations after every piece we played!

We have just finished our first week as exchange students with the Netherlands Youth Orchestra (Nationaal Jeugd Orkest), playing a programme of Roukens ‘Chase’, Berlioz ‘Harold in Italy’ and Mussorgsky ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’. Our conductor is the wonderful Etienne Siebens, and Isabelle van Keulen joins us as the fabulous viola soloist in the Berlioz.
The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland (NYOS) invited four young, Scottish, string musicians to represent NYOS and take part in a wonderful project based in the Netherlands, organised by The European Federation of Youth Orchestras entitled 'MusXchange Chamber Project'
Read on to find out how Emma Pantel, Abigail Young, Campbell Parker and Sarah Ayoub got on as they performed together for the very first time as a quartet, received expert quartet and octet coaching and took part in the NJO Orchestral Project, where they performed: Sibelius - Finlandia; Hillborg Violin Concerto and Nielsen Symphony No. 4 - conducted by Christian Karlsen.
2015 has been a magnificent year for all NYOS ensembles, so far, with critically acclaimed performances across the board; bumper audiences throughout Scotland and of course, a welcome return to the international stage.
