A talented County Music Service (CMS) pupil, Cameron Smith, was invited to join the National Youth Orchestra (NYO) Inspire Orchestra this Summer. An Orchestra was formed to inspire other young people by taking orchestral music to communities where young people have had little or no chance to enjoy it.
The first NYO Inspire Orchestra came together at the end of June for an intense five day residential rehearsal period before touring to teenage audiences in secondary schools in the North West of England.
Cameron, who lives in Polesworth and attends Polesworth School, was able to take part in this unique experience due to the NYO tutors and staff being impressed by his talent and commitment to music making. In Cameron’s own words it has been an “unforgettable opportunity” that has inspired him to continue playing and desperate to learn more.
