A qualified Matron and other house staff will be in attendance to look after the well-being of the players. All staff have been cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau.
Age: 11 to 21 on the 1st of September 2011
Standard: NYTRO is intended for players of a good grade 5 standard and above, and ages 11 to 16: progression to NYRO is entirely dependent on annual audition, however players of exceptional skills for their age may be promoted sooner. NYRO is intended for players aged 11 to 21 of a minimum grade 8 standard - however, examination success is not the only criterion: the audition is the main measurement for selection, and capable and experienced players without grade passes are fully encouraged to apply. BlockWork is a one-to-a-part ensemble by invitation (selection through audition).
The concert will be in the school concert hall at 2.30pm on Saturday July 30th.
