NYOS Junior Orchestra Spring Concert

This spring, under the baton of conductor Holly Mathieson, NYOS Junior Orchestra presents a broad spectrum of music from North and South American composers – with music rarely heard in the UK or European concert halls – together with works by more prominent European composers inspired to celebrate the remarkable diversity of the Americas.

"There has been such a wealth of orchestral repertoire to come out of the American continents: the incredible adaptations of dance music from South America, works that draw upon the cool influence of the US jazz movement, and the lush romanticism of Hollywood's film scores. The Americas have also been home to some of the world's greatest and most prolific women composers of the last two centuries, and some of the world's major exponents of minimalism, who wrote works that evoke urban cityscapes and rhythmic machines. I'm pleased that we've found a little bit of everything for our players, to whet their appetites for more exploration!” Holly Mathieson, Conductor
