“The Ulster Youth Orchestra deserved its standing ovation, and great credit is due to everyone who made this memorable concert possible, including the director, tutors, musicians, sponsors, parents and families.”

“The exuberance of the orchestra was matched with the response of the audience, four ‘curtain’ calls and great whooping from their young admirers, I expect most of them musicians themselves. We have a great musical future in Northern Ireland with musicians of this standard. Congratulations to them and to their tutors.”
