NATIONAL YOUTH WIND ORCHESTRA OF WALES


“essentially bright, energetic … compelling force … the youngsters’ practiced musicianship transcended it all”
South Wales Argus

The National Youth Wind Orchestra of Wales (NYWOW) has developed an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s leading symphonic wind ensembles. Its performances both in Wales and abroad, particularly of contemporary repertoire in which it specialises, have received widespread critical acclaim.

The Wind Orchestra was established in 2002 by Tŷ Cerdd, which continued to manage the ensemble until 30th September 2017 when responsibility for all six national performing ensembles transferred to the newly established National Youth Arts Wales.
