Alumni

NYOS has an extensive list of alumni, including world famous classical musicians such as Dame Evelyn Glennie, Nicola Benedetti, Rory Macdonald and Colin Currie.  From the world of jazz our list of successful alumni includes current Artistic Directors Malcolm Edmonstone and Andrew Bain. We know that the exceptional training, encouragement and experience that our young musicians gain from taking part in a NYOS ensemble stands them in very good stead for the future, wherever their career takes them.

If you are a former member of a NYOS ensemble, we would love to keep in touch. Our next exclusive newsletter will be published in early 2018. Why not sign up to our mailing list with the form opposite?

We are currently working on a programme of events and opportunities for our alumni. Please check out our Alumni Facebook page if you haven’t already, where we will be featuring NYOS alumni from all walks of life and asking you to share your stories.

We also have an Alumni Facebook group, which is a great way to connect with your fellow alumni.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Becky Smith, Alumni & Projects Officer, on 0141 332 8311 or beckysmith@nyos.co.uk
