Summer Courses & Concerts Cancelled
The message is sent on behalf of the Board and Staff of NYOS
After careful consideration and with great sadness, we have taken the decision to cancel all our summer courses and concerts due to the ongoing situation with the COVID-19 outbreak. The health and well-being of all our students, staff, guest artists and conductors is our top priority and we do not wish to put anyone or their communities at further risk at this time.
As well as following guidance from the Scottish Government and our key funders, many of our venue and residential partners have been forced to cancel our bookings. This is the right choice at this difficult time, and while we are saddened that Scotland’s young musicians will lose out on an entire year of NYOS activity, it’s more important at this time that everyone stays healthy and safe.
Full refunds will be made in due course, and you will be contacted separately on this matter by the end of May. We look forward to the time when we can resume the musicmaking activities that we all love – sadly places from this year can’t be deferred, but we invite all members to re-audition once applications for 2021 open in August.
Best wishes from everyone at NYOS.
In the meantime, please enjoy our #nyosfromhome series, comprising short films from tutors and conductors with tips and advice for practising at home. We hope to offer something similar this summer, so please keep an eye on our social media channels for more information on this and for advice on how to stay musically active during this challenging time #nyosshares
