"It's given me more confidence in making friends outside of school. I would love to play in more
ensembles and orchestras for many years to come!"
NCO Projects Member, aged 9

“(The music) was hard at first but at the end of the second day I was so proud... I loved it. It was really inspiring.” NCO Projects Member, Spring 2022

"NCO Project weekends are a gateway to a lifelong love of music making. The weekends are orchestral, creative and most importantly lots of fun. Put simply, bringing like-minded, aspirational young children together to share great music, is what NCO is all about." Catherine Arlidge, Artistic and Educational Director, NCO
