Glasgow Royal Concert Hall presents:


This summer in Glasgow NYOS Junior Orchestra, conducted by Holly Mathieson present a programme sure to delight audiences of all ages. 

 Since 2013 the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland, as part of its continuous development programme, has invited one outstanding young musician each year to perform as soloist with the Junior Orchestra. This July, NYOS Juniors are joined on stage by former Principal Double Bass of NYOS Symphony Orchestra, Ben Burnley to perform the UK Premier of Anthony Ritchie’s Whale Song.

Conductor Holly Mathieson has been working with NYOS Junior Orchestra for four years. During this time, she has inspired our youngest instrumentalists to perform beyond themselves and we look forward to another year of wonderful music making.  

Conductor Holly Mathieson “I feel like we’ve crafted a really beautiful programme to stretch the Junior Orchestra creatively, but also embed the wonderful work they do on their technique during the courses with their tutors. Going into my final year with the Junior Orchestra, I’m incredibly grateful to have had four wonderful years meeting these extraordinary young people, and playing a part in their musical development, and look forward to watching them all progress as young adults in Scotland’s vibrant music community.”
