The National Youth Orchestra’s (NYO) Inspire Residency is taking place at the University of Liverpool this week, with three free performances open to all.
For the second year in a row, the University is hosting the NYO, and young musicians from across the city will be invited to join with the orchestra for workshops and discussions.
Different sections of the NYO, made up of teenagers aged between 13 and 19, will also be performing at the Liverpool Guild of Students’ Mountford Hall on Monday February 15 and Thursday February 18, with a final date on Sunday 21 February.
Dr Helen Thomas, from the University’s Department of Music, said: “The philosophy behind NYO Inspire is simple: to give breakthrough experiences of orchestral music to teenagers of all backgrounds, both as musicians and as audience members.
“Employing the power of peer inspiration and leadership, NYO Inspire offers the highest quality orchestral playing opportunities to those committed teenage musicians who need them most.
“The partnership between the University and the NYO furthers the advancement of music education, the development of young musicians, and the appreciation of classical music in the city of Liverpool.
“The University, through its Department of Music, provides performance spaces and facilities within the Guild of Students and benefits from reciprocal academic and practical seminars and performance events.”
Monday’s sharing concert features the brass ensemble; while the strings and percussion ensemble will be playing on Thursday; before the strings and wind ensemble take to the stage on Sunday for the final show of the week.
All performances begin at 4pm and last approximately an hour.
