Classical music

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain - Unleashed

Think you know what a classical music concert is like? Well, think again.

Look up from your screen and reset your ears, because this spring the world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers brings you an electrifying live musical experience.

You can forget sitting still and staring at the stage at this concert. Consumed by sound, you'll be right alongside the NYO musicians: marching into battle with the stormtroopers of Star Wars, chilling to the cool electronica of Mothership and dancing to the wild Latin beats of Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.

Symphonic Dances is introduced by a short theatrical piece (script by Michael Wickerek) performed by actors from the National Youth Theatre.
