One of the leading entrepreneurs in classical music, David Taylor is the CEO and Founder of the acclaimed Yorkshire Young Sinfonia (YYS).
Since its creation, YYS has reached an audience of over 3 million people in just 2 years. YYS continues to grow, receiving widespread media coverage, including the BBC Radio 4 documentary ‘Birth of an Orchestra’ and winning the White Rose Awards 2016 - Arts and Culture Award - the largest tourism awards in the UK. Other coverage includes The Telegraph, Classic FM, BBC Radio 3 and Classical Music Magazine.
In 2017, YYS became the first youth orchestra in the world to be 100% digital, using iPads instead of sheet music with the app Newzik and performed with international violinist Ray Chen.
As a self-starter in the arts, David has developed an in-depth knowledge of the classical music industry and a wide range of skills and he feels it is hugely important to pass the lessons he has learned on to others. David is passionate about enabling the next generation of entrepreneurs, innovators, and ‘doers’ in the arts. He regularly speaks and writes about entrepreneurship, arts education and classical music; both to young people and those already established within the sector.
Before founding YYS, David taught cello at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music (Jerusalem).
