Following an extensive selection process, David Young and Ho Ting Chan have been chosen to play with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. David will be playing in the first violins and Ho Ting in the bassoon section. This is a huge achievement and both boys deserve many congratulations. Over the year they will be taking part in intensive courses in the holidays and performing in venues across the country, including the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican Hall, culminating in a televised performance from the Royal Albert Hall in next year’s series of BBC Prom concerts.
Both David and Ho Ting played in two recent NYO concerts and a recording of one of these, from Liverpool, is available on the BBC website.
