The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya is a pioneering education and training project which was set up by the Art of Music Foundation in 2010.

Inspired by the success of Venezuela’s El Sistema organisation in bringing communities together and developing national pride through music participation, the National Youth Orchestra of Kenya (or KNYO as it is often called) brings together musically gifted youth from around the country regardless of their socio-economic, ethnic or regional background and it is the first truly national orchestra in Kenya.

The orchestra encourages, nurtures and showcases their talent. By pursuing and encouraging excellence we believe we are setting a benchmark for the country and giving other youth with talent something to aspire to. Our ultimate aim is link the community based Ghetto Classics programmes with the National Youth Orchestra our vision being that we would have a network of community music programmes that all link up to a national ensemble of the highest standard.
