St. John’s Antigua – Friday November 4, 2022 – The Antigua and Barbuda Youth Symphony Orchestra (ABYSO) will launch an exciting new concert series called ‘Play Out’. The series will feature mini-concerts performed by string and wind ensembles within the Orchestra at different venues across the Island. The repertoire will include a diverse range of music from popular and traditional genres allowing the audience to sing along or just tap their feet while enjoying a beautiful moment of musical escapism.


Violinist Braimah Kanneh-Mason will join the ABYSO Strings for the first ‘Play Out’ Concert to be held at the Nomad Restaurant on Sunday 13 th November 2022. Braimah will be on Island to conduct string master classes with the ABYSO and has agreed to headline this first public performance.

Speaking of the concert series, ABYSO Event Co-ordinator and Director, Eurileen Thibou said, “this series gives our musicians more opportunities to perform in public, building their confidence and developing their skills in ensemble playing. It also allows the public to see and hear a different side of the Orchestra and to interact with the musicians in a more intimate setting. We encourage all who can to support our youth as they ‘Play Out’.

Details of the concert series can be found on the ABYSO website and social media pages. Plan to be entertained, elevated and energized by the positive sounds of our young people as they ‘Play Out’. This will be a series of music you will not want to miss.
