Discover: What We Fear Then?
National Open Youth Orchestra perform What We Fear Then?
"What Fear We Then?" by Alexander Campkin was co-commissioned with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Music video by award-winning director Justin Edgar showcases the potential of 26 young musicians - disabled and non-disabled members of NOYO.
The National Open Youth Orchestra (NOYO) is a world-first, ambitious orchestra launched in September 2018 to give some of the UK’s most talented young disabled musicians a progression route. It promotes musical excellence, supporting 11-25-year-old disabled and non-disabled musicians to rehearse and perform together as members of a pioneering inclusive ensemble.
Some of the National Open Youth Orchestra musicians play acoustic instruments; others, electronic instruments like the Clarion, which can be played with any movement of the body including the eyes.
NOYO collaborates with cutting-edge composers to create exciting new music for a diverse range of musicians and instruments. Our first commission, ‘The Umbrella’ by Liam Taylor-West won a British Composer Award in 2018.
