SAMYO is recruiting!


Be inspired by the new sound of Indian orchestral music

If you’re between the age of 10 and 18 and have a passion for Indian music, SAMYO could be just the place for you! With exciting compositions, collaborations, training and performance opportunities, SAMYO is leading the way for the future of Indian orchestral music.

SAMYO is the UK’s National Youth Orchestra for Indian Music. Formed in 2002, the orchestra has consistently pushed the boundaries of Indian music, experimenting with both instrumental combinations and genre fusions. The resulting sound is classical, contemporary, beautiful and unique.

Creating and facilitating opportunities for talented young musicians to realise their potential is at the heart of SAMYO’s mission. This is done through a combination of specialised intensive training and performance opportunities which offer motivation and inspiration.

In 2012, the orchestra became one of eight National Youth Music Organisations funded by Arts Council England.
