IAYO’s 2020 | Zooming in on the Music

Here at the Irish Association of Youth Orchestras, amidst the strangeness of 2020, we still had an enjoyable and musically productive year which would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the young musicians, tutors, volunteers and family! This video represents a snapshot of all the hard work and dedication of those involved across our programmes this year.
