The application process is open now for UYO 2020 and what a stellar line up we have to offer!

UYO is proud to confirm Daniele Rustioni (the Ulster Orchestra’s new Chief Conductor) for our 2020 Summer Residential Course and Concerts.  We are thrilled to be able to bring this versatile and compelling conductor to UYO as one of the world’s most sought-after conductors.

Apply now for this once in a lifetime experience!

We are also delighted to announce soloist Ciaran McCabe (ex UYO and now member of Maggini Quartet & the London Chamber Orchestra) who will perform Korngold’s Violin Concerto between these two classical masterpieces.

Dvořák             Carnival Overture

Sibelius            Symphony No.1 in E minor


Joining Daniele and Ciaran at the 10 day residential course will be rehearsal conductor Daniel Palmizio and a team of experienced professional tutors who will deliver an exceptionally high standard of musical training. 

The residential course begins at Greenmount College in Antrim on 16th August and culminates with two public concerts at the Guildhall in Derry/Londonderry on 24th August and at the Ulster Hall on 25th August 2020.

Both challenging and highly rewarding,  this course offers a unique orchestral experience which develops the talented young musician musically and socially.

“I had a really wonderful time and I feel that I have progressed so much in my second year of UYO. I am very lucky to have been a part of something so special with amazingly talented people. These memories and friendships will stay with me forever. I am excited for the future!” UYO 2019 member
