Working with the National Open Youth Orchestra
The National Open Youth Orchestra (NOYO) is the world's first disabled-led national youth orchestra. It was created following the success of the pilot project, the South West Open Youth Orchestra, which was the recipient of the ABRSM sponsored Learning & Participation prize in the 2017 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards.
ABRSM supports the innovative and inclusive values on which NOYO is based and its commitment to supporting the progression of all young musicians to national level. As a founding sponsor, we have supported NOYO at the initial stages, from the recruitment and training of its first cohort of young musicians to its first concert in spring 2020. We are delighted to continue to support the progression of NOYO and its musicians through its ambitious programme.
