During this spring concert at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall, NYOS Symphony Orchestra perform an array of exhilarating and horizon broadening compositions inspired by The Americas under the baton of conductor Tecwyn Evans. Tecwyn is a friend of, and long-term collaborator with The National Youth Orchestras of Scotland and we are delighted to welcome him back to work with our flagship Symphony Orchestra.
The Orchestra will also be joined this spring by violinist Chloë Hanslip. Chloë has already established herself as an artist of distinction on the international stage. Prodigiously talented, she made her BBC Proms debut in 2002 and her American concerto debut in 2003, and has performed at major venues all over the world.
