Young musicians head to Birmingham to perform at National Festival

Earlier this year the Bristol Youth Chamber Orchestra took part in the Music For Youth Regional Festival heat which was a brilliant experience for all of the young players and the group received fantastic feedback from the music mentors.

We’ve now received the very exciting news that the Orchestra has been invited to take part in the Music For Youth National Festival which takes place on Saturday 6 July in Symphony Hall, Birmingham.

The Music for Youth National Festival is an annual event that takes place every July with around 10,000 of the UK’s brightest young musicians performing at world class venues and city-centre locations across Birmingham as well as having the opportunity to take part in workshops & see fringe performances.

Congratulations to the BYCO – we can’t wait to see your performance!

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.
