The UK's largest youth orchestra is paying its first visit to Northern Ireland – and on its 10-day itinerary will be concerts in the living rooms of homes in the north west.
A 400-strong cast from the the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, the Irish Youth Chamber Choir and Codetta will perform at Londonderry's Millennium Forum next Thursday.
But before that the musicians will stage a day of intimate concerts to mark the City Of Culture year.
Members of the orchestra have been invited by young Derry musicians to stay in their homes and to put on the mini-recitals on Saturday. They will also perform in parks and other public spaces. Full details at www.cityofculture2013.com
