Join us in supporting music’s future, today.

NCO is a registered charity. In order for us to continue inspiring and nurturing these exceptional children, we rely on membership fees paid by parents who are able to afford to do so and a wide range of fundraising activities.

To keep the costs of membership within reach, we only ask parents to contribute a portion of these costs for their membership fees; the fees typically cover around 50% of the full costs involved.

At NCO, we fundraise extensively in order to offer bursaries and financial support to families whose children may not otherwise be able to access our programme. This is a considerable annual challenge.

If you believe in what we do, there are many ways in which you can help us to continue inspiring these exceptional children.
