There are also scholarships available to help with the costs of membership:

  • Leverhulme Scholarships: through the generosity of the Leverhulme Trust, we are able to award scholarships in recognition of outstanding performance at audition.
  • Vivienne Price Memorial Fund: created in memory of NCO’s founding patron, this fund exists to support children who might otherwise not be able to take up their place in the orchestra.

You cannot apply directly for a scholarship – these are awarded at the discretion of the Artistic & Education Director.
