"NCO is the fulfilment of a dream" Vivienne Price MBE (1931-2014), NCO Founder
Thank you so much to everyone who joined us at the Vivienne Price Memorial Concert on Sunday 1 February.
It was an incredible evening, full of passion, emotion but most of all admiration and gratitude for Vivienne. We were delighted to be joined on stage by some ex-members; the Orchestra did us all proud and delivered a simply outstanding performance of meaningful pieces. Vivienne's influence is so wide-ranging; she has made such a significant impact on music education and we want to ensure that her legacy lives on.
We have established a Vivienne Price Memorial Fund so that Vivienne's ethos of music for all young people can be maintained. To contribute to the Memorial Fund, please send a cheque made out to 'National Children's Orchestras' and write the words 'Memorial Fund' on the reverse of the cheque. In order to make your donation go even further, if you are a tax payer, please complete a Gift Aid Form and send it along with your cheque to: Claire Vautier, NCO, 57 Buckingham Road, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, BS24 9BG
