About the National Open Youth Orchestra
Now in its fifth year, the National Open Youth Orchestra (NOYO) is a hugely creative, pioneering inclusive orchestra where talented 11-25 year-old disabled and non-disabled musicians rehearse and perform together. It works with cutting-edge composers to create exciting new music that marries the sounds of acoustic, accessible and electronic instruments such as the Clarion, Seaboard RISE and LinnStrument.

Young people should definitely join NOYO because it's an orchestra like no other. And it's been amazing for me and everyone else.
It's been really exciting playing music that's specifically orchestrated for NOYO and to play with a range of instruments rather than a standard orchestra.
