Tomorrow night sees the culmination of celebrations marking 10 years of collaboration between the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the National Youth Orchestra of Wales (NYOW).

Youthful Promise is a concert being held at Cardiff's St David's Hall and features Strauss' Don Juan, Mathias' Piano Concerto No. 3 and Brahms' Symphony No. 1.

The concert will be recorded and can be heard on BBC Radio Wales at 8pm on Sunday 24 October, or BBC Radio 3 on 1 November (time TBC).

Tickets can be obtained from BBC National Orchestra of Wales Audience Line on 0800 052 1812.

NYOW is the world's oldest national youth orchestra and works to bring talented young musicians (around 115 at any one time) between the ages of 13 and 21 into a world in which they can be guided, tutored and mentored by established stars of the classical world in Wales.

Suzanne Hay, education and community manager of NOW said: "Our collaboration with the NYOW has gone from strength to strength. Over the past 10 years we have worked with more than 500 young people from the NYOW and the students have gained a unique insight into the daily life of professional performers.

"This opportunity for such talented and committed young musicians has given vital encouragement to Wales' next musical generation".
