Imagine packing up your instrument and heading to New York for a week-long, fully-paid, celebration of talent together with musicians and singers from our other 35 schools around the world. There’s no need to imagine now, as our Nord Anglia’s Global Orchestra is going live! Three of our very own NAIS musicians or singers will be selected to represent our school in New York in June!
What are the highlights?
- Auditions are open to Year 5s and above (Grade 6 musicians and singers)

- Three successful pupils will be invited to attend an all-expenses paid, week-long residential music Programme in New York from 24 June – 1 July 2015

What will they do in New York?
Our musicians will join inspiring workshops, practice sessions guided by experts, watch performances by famous artists and be immersed in the city’s arts culture to nurture their talent. The 93-strong Orchestra will visit the world-renowned performing arts conservatory, The Julliard School, with which we have just announced an exclusive Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme.
