Music Transforms Lives: Feel the Impact

Everything we do – whether on the concert platform or in the community – is made possible by a network of generous individuals and organisations playing their part. 

Our goal is that no young person misses out on the opportunity to take part in in our transformative music-making projects due to financial circumstances. 

  • In 2024, 49% of orchestra members received supported through our bursary scheme and one in five received a free place.

We can continue to achieve our goal by raising sufficient funds to ensure that each year:

  • More than 100 participants are offered free places on our engagement projects.
  • Members’ fees for all paid activities are subsidised by 66%.
  • Young people from all backgrounds benefit from our work, including increasing numbers of participants from areas high on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation.


‘NYOS is the best experience I have ever had, orchestrally and otherwise. I would recommend it to anyone and look forward to auditioning next year.’
