National Children’s Orchestras of Great Britain (NCO)
NCO was founded in 1978 to provide younger musicians with the opportunity to develop their talents in a national symphonic orchestra.
NCO is the only organisation that operates on a national scale in the UK catering for children in the 7 - 14 years old age group who show an early spark of musical talent and potential.
"We are the parents of a child who has attended many youth orchestras and two of the UK's specialist music schools. In our view, the NCO is quite simply the most outstanding of all british youth music institutions". NCO Parent
NCO offers unique and life-changing opportunities for young musicians in six National age-banded Orchestras.These meet throughout the year on residential courses during the school holidays.
