In May, we were invited by the European Union in the UK to play in their Europe Day Concert at St John’s Smith Square. The orchestra had an amazing time performing a varied programme of great repertoire by European composers, including Chabrier, Suppè & Offenbach. We were honoured to take part in this special day and are therefore delighted to present here a video of the full concert! Thanks again to our friends at European Union in the UK & Cultural Relations Platform for making this event happen and for giving us the opportunity to play such fantastic music to a packed house.
In June 2021, the YMSO returned to St. John’s Smith Square with a programme showcasing the abilities of their young musicians in repertoire for full symphony orchestra, including Elgar's In the South and Glazunov Symphony No. 5 in B flat Major.
We thought we would put together another Virtual Performance for you all to enjoy! We look forward to playing together again on October 13th.
In November we were able to meet and play together, but without an audience. As a result sharing this video of our concert with you is particularly special for us.
As the year comes to an end, all of us at the YMSO would like to wish you a very merry Christmas. We say farewell to 2020 with Offenbach's energetic Can Can, high-kicking us into a better 2021.
On October the 14th YMSO proudly returned to St John's Smith Square to perform to a live audience for the first time since the COVID crisis began. We hope you enjoy it, all those in the orchestra and audience certainly did. It was an emotional and memorable experience.
We are pleased to present a fourth virtual performance for your enjoyment. Tchaikovsky’s ‘Grand Pas de Deux’ from ‘Nutcracker’ has long been a favourite within the repertoire and our musicians have had a lot of fun putting it together. Thank you for your continuing support in these difficult times.
Following on from the lovely response to our previous virtual performances, we are excited to present the third instalment in our ongoing series. This time, we're delving into Romantic Opera repertoire with the heroic prelude to Act 3 of Wagner's "Lohengrin". Many thanks again to all our friends and colleagues for their continued support. We cannot wait to start performing live concerts again soon and hope to see you all when we can!
Following the fantastic response last month's performance of the Galop from Rossini's William Tell Overture has received, the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra is delighted to present the second piece in its series of virtual performances. This time, we're whisking you away to the glacial vistas of Finland, for a rendition of the March from Karelia Suite by Jean Sibelius.
Following the cancellation of our concert at St John’s Smith Square last month, we were immediately desperate to get making music again, through any means possible. YMSO is therefore thrilled to present our first EVER virtual performance- the Galop from Rossini's Overture to his opera William Tell.
