Auditions 2024. APPLY NOW.

On 9th May, we were delighted to perform once again at the European Union in the UK's celebration of #EuropeDay at St John’s Smith Square!

The orchestra played a brand new arrangement of the iconic European anthem, Ode to Joy, followed by the UK's own National anthem. This performance was made especially significant by the 200th anniversary of Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

Thank you to our friends at European Union in the UK and Cultural Relations Platform for involving us in this special occasion.

The Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra is Britain’s leading orchestra for young musicians

The Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra is Britain’s leading orchestra for young musicians on the threshold of their professional careers. It provides invaluable experience to those who are studying or have recently completed their training, but are not yet established in the profession.

Support the YMSO and become a Friend

Unlike many similar organisations in Europe and the USA, this orchestra does not benefit from any government subsidy. We receive no public funding of any sort and are therefore entirely dependent on the generosity of individuals, charitable foundations and corporate sponsors.

Next auditions

The next round of auditions will take place in June/July 2024.

Our Influence over the years

There is not an orchestra in the British Isles that doesn’t contain alumni of the YMSO. As a testament to how influential they feel their time at YMSO was, many of them return to the orchestra to tutor at rehearsals and also advise.

VIEW OUR ALUMNI

"these students represent the next generation of orchestral musicians who will continue our great classical tradition into the new millennium. The orchestra needs all your encouragement and support."

Lord Menuhin
President 1993-1999
