Chris Green – Residency runner and general assistant.

"NYSO residencies are some of the main highlights of my year and I absolutely love making music with other musicians my age and particularly enjoy the full string orchestra sound and repertoire. The tutors were fantastic, giving us insights into playing and posture as well as the specifics of the pieces. The full rehearsals were extraordinary: the amount of work and depth we went into in the pieces was more than anything I’ve ever done."
