The National Youth Orchestra of Scotland (NYOS) will be performing at Ayr Town Hall at the end of the month. 

This year, NYOS Senior Orchestra is configured as a chamber orchestra, providing opportunities for solo playing and a more intimate, conversational style of musicmaking.

The two-hour-long show takes place at the High Street venue on Friday, July 29 and starts at 7pm. 

The show is set up to explore a diverse programme of orchestral music opening with Richard Rodney Bennett’s witty and inventive Sinfonietta.

Award-winning Scottish accordionist Ryan Corbett joins the orchestra in Trojan’s fantastical concerto for accordion and orchestra, Fairy Tales, before a performance of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, also known as his ‘Scottish’ symphony for its evocation of the wild Romantic landscapes he encountered on his walking tour of Scotland in 1829.

The orchestra is conducted by Jamie Phillips, associate conductor of the Halle Orchestra.

Tickets start at just £6 and can be purchased here.
