Following the Music for Youth Festival in Birmingham,
on 9th November 2010 PYSO and Ross Pike played at the Royal Albert Hall at the Schools Proms.

“I saw the Penzance Youth String Orchestra perform Vivaldi’s ‘Summer’ at the School’s Proms, which I thought was absolutely fantastic. In fact I am not sure I will ever be able to listen to the four seasons without remembering it with a smile on my face!  The members of the Penzance Youth String Orchestra should be incredibly proud of their performance. Bravo!” 

Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Culture, November 2010.
