About NCYO

Norfolk County Youth Orchestra (NCYO) is a full symphony orchestra, playing professional orchestral repertoire and performing around 5 concerts a year, and is made up of young players, aged from 11 to 21.

Norfolk County Youth Orchestra works closely with the Norfolk Centre for Young Musicians, part of Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Many of our students go on to study music at national conservatoires, and NCYM/Guildhall run many programmes/workshops for under 18’s, including transition to conservatoire and university. Over half of NCYO students also attend NCYM and have access to this support. All musicians from Norfolk schools and colleges are welcome.

NCYO offers a unique opportunity for you to enjoy performing music of the highest quality. NCYO players love their time with us, but also acquire important life skills: team-building, leadership, time management and self-confidence.

Senior NCYO players are also invited to play in the ‘Triorca’ international youth orchestra which is made up of players from Britain, Germany and Serbia under the baton of Nicholas Daniel OBE (awarded the Queens Medal for Music 2012).

When do NCYO meet?

The orchestra usually meets two or three times a year.

In compliance with official guidelines on COVID and for the safety of all our students/staff, activities were postponed during 2020.

Details of future courses will be made available when confirmed and restrictions allow.
