Mighty River

Sunday 3th July

Bold, brilliant, brave: join the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain as hundreds of musicians animate the music of iconic British women at the New Music Biennial.


Errollyn Wallen’s momentous Mighty River explores themes of slavery and freedom, and expresses a positive vision for human connectedness.

NYO’s teenage musicians have a special commitment to this music, having gathered from across the nation to build a digital performance in homage to the death of George Floyd.

Now this national community of teenagers who care passionately about social justice play Mighty River live together. Speaking together through their music, their individual voices become extremely powerful.
