Progression routes for young disabled musicians in the UK are limited due to lack of access to suitable musical provision, instruments and the ability to play with others.

The National Open Youth Orchestra (NOYO) is the world’s first disabled-led national youth orchestra promoting musical excellence and working alongside disabled and non-disabled musicians aged 11-25.

With five training centres across the country, we run the Bournemouth centre with monthly training sessions and 1-2-1 lessons for NOYO musicians playing a range of acoustic and accessible music technology instruments.

The Bournemouth members of the National Open Youth Orchestra invite you to their sharing of what they’ve worked on through the year. Some of the UK’s most talented young disabled and non-disabled musicians, will take to the stage together. We are inviting you to enter a captivating musical universe where the familiar merges with the unknown.
