LOLLAPALOOZA – National Youth Wind Orchestra rattling through the north with conductor Mark Heron

The National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain (NYWO) is the UK’s premier wind orchestra for approximately 75 young musicians aged 14 to 21. Established as a charity in 1986 by Stephen Dodgson, Eric McGavin, Robert Montgomery and Leonard Salzedo, NYWO brings together some of the finest young woodwind, brass and percussion players in the country. The orchestral configuration uses the whole range of clarinets to take the place of violins and violas in a symphony orchestra, resulting in a wonderfully rich and sonorous sound.

The orchestra covers an extensive and challenging range of repertoire from traditional wind classics and orchestral transcriptions, to arrangements of film score favourites. The players regularly work closely with contemporary composers to perform new works and commissions which frequently attract world-class soloists to perform with the orchestra.
