Young Orchestra for London: Behind the Scenes

Monday 16 February 2015

It’s been a busy five weeks of rehearsals and workshops for our Young Orchestra for London culminating in two wonderful performances at the Barbican Centre and the Southbank Centre’s Clore Ballroom.

From the rehearsal room to the final performances with Sir Simon Rattle, our young players excitedly shared their experiences with us through Instagram and Twitter, taking us behind the scenes of the Young Orchestra for London.

The Young Orchestra for London is generously supported by Prudential plc, SHM Foundation and many others.

'The most amazing experience, there are too many people too thank, so many memories made. I have loved every single moment and all I can say is I hope we do this again because I will never ever forget this experience and neither will I forget the friends I've made along the way. Including my BFF Simon'
