Orchestras for All is delighted to announce Nick Thorne as our new Executive Director. Nick joins us as we approach our 10 year anniversary and launch of new 2020-2025 strategy after leadership roles at Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Dorset Music Hub and most recently as Head of Partnerships at the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain.
Orchestras for All is delighted to announce Lucy Hale has been appointed its inaugural Young Composer-in-Residence for the 2019-2020 season. Hale will work with the 100 young members of the National Orchestra for All (NOFA) to create a brand new piece of music to be premièred at the spectacular season finale concert on 9 April 2020 at LSO St Luke’s in London.
“The impact of Modulo and our work with Orchestras for All has been enormous. The visit to the Royal Academy of Music and the opportunity to work with musical professionals has inspired our young people to get more involved in ensemble playing and this is already paying dividends in their performances.”
“It is vital in this day and age that people across the country continue to support programmes such as NOFA in order to continue the existence of personal development through music. Perhaps results are expected to prove validity of such programmes in which case, look no further than myself and other NOFA alumni.”
