National Youth Orchestra Wales 2018

 

Pugh is pleased to be involved again this year with the National Youth Orchestra Wales 2018 Performances.

Each year a cohort of over 100 young Welsh musicians drawn from Welsh schools and UK universities, all intent on developing their music-making and performing skills, attend an intense summer residency under the expert tutelage of experienced instrumentalists.

The Summer Residency precedes a week-long tour of live performances.
