Working with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

ABRSM is the major sponsor of of the NYO Inspire programme, established by the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain (NYO) to provide opportunities for dedicated teenage musicians.

We're proud to support NYO Inspire as it provides breakthrough experiences through orchestral music to teenagers of all backgrounds. The Inspire Orchestra, Inspire Ensemble and Inspire Days provide players of Grade 6+ standard with the opportunity to engage in peer-to-peer learning with NYO musicians. This helps them to understand the demands of orchestral playing and provides clear progression routes to further opportunities, including becoming an NYO member.
