NYOS Symphony Orchestra Spring Concerts

The Americas is the theme for all National Youth Orchestras of Scotland ensembles throughout 2017. Each orchestra will perform a blend of well known standards together with rarely heard gems directly linked with, or inspired by, the Americas.

Within this theme we will present a broad spectrum of classical music through to contemporary repertoire, from North and South American composers (with music rarely heard in the UK or European concert halls) together with more prominent European composers inspired to write works celebrating the remarkable diversity of the Americas.

In April, NYOS Symphony Orchestra performs an array of exhilarating and horizon broadening compositions under the baton of conductor Tecwyn Evans. Tecwyn is a friend of, and long-term collaborator with NYOS and we are delighted to welcome him back to work with our flagship Symphony Orchestra for concerts in Perth and in Edinburgh at the magnificent Usher Hall. The Orchestra will also be joined this spring by violinist Chloë Hanslip. Chloë has already established herself as an artist of distinction on the international stage. Prodigiously talented, she made her BBC Proms debut in 2002 and her American concerto debut in 2003, and has performed at major venues all over the world.
