Milton Violin Presented to New Leader, Jasmine Morris

Exceptional young violinist, Jasmine Morris, aged 19, from Coleraine, has been announced as the new Leader of the Ulster Youth Orchestra (UYO), and has been presented by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland with the Milton Violin, an exquisite 241 year-old instrument made by renowned Neapolitan violin maker, Joseph Gagliano, to be played throughout her tenure as leader.

The precious violin, which is 239 years old, was generously donated to the Arts Council by Professor Alan Milton in 1980 and in the past has been used by the Leader and principal players of the Ulster Orchestra. In 2013 the Arts Council decided to loan the precious instrument to the Ulster Youth Orchestra to be used by exceptionally gifted musicians in their role as Leader.
